   Here's an idea.  customize-changed could work like customize-browse,
   except that it would show only the groups that cover settings which
   have changed meanings.

   What do you think?

That would obviously not reduce the total number of listed options.
(There quite simply is no way to reduce that substantially.)  It would
not help somebody wanting to take a look at all of them (quite to the
contrary).  And with the current one-buffer layout, at least they are
listed alphabetically and one can use C-s.  It would also not do
anything about the problem that the command may take a very long time
on slow machines (it could actually make it worse).

So I do not believe that this change would be a good idea.  I believe
we should just leave things as they are.
