Essentially, I believe that one needs a new node with nearly the same
title as Lennart's node but mainly describing customize-browse.  I
would move the current description of customize-browse into that node
rather than repeating it.  The node could briefly mention
customize-apropos, with an @anchor to its detailed description.  That
would achieve the same purpose as Lennart's patch (pointing out that
customize-apropos is an alternate way to find options) with a short
sentence, rather than with a node.
I must admit I have made a mistake by not mentioning customize-browse. I thought it was covered under Groups for some reason, but apperently it is not covered there as I believe.

And the point you made in another letter that the apropos commands only finds loaded options is very essential. This makes my approach much less useful and it should be pointed out clearly.

So I have no real objections. But I still think that the apropos functions should have a prominent place in the node. And to me it was not really obvious from the beginning that you could use the usual search functions the customize buffer.
