   That seems ok to me, provided the problem Luc is concerned about

There also is another problem: Kim's change would not allow you to
hide anything that is not an atom.  That may include large strings or

For instance, you would no longer be able to hide the value of
initial-scratch-message.  That value hinders navigation in the buffer.

For instance, if you do `emacs -q', then `M-x customize-group initialization',
and then position point say between Initial and Message in
"Initial Scratch Message", then do `C-n', you will see that point gets stuck.
