Fair enough.  I think it would be a good change to make after the
release though.

I think that's because only `customize-' prefixed stuff is defined
after emacs -Q.  Doing emacs -Q then M-x customize-variable varname
[RET] loads cus-edit at which point M-x cust [TAB} shows both
`customize-' and `Custom-' prefixed commands.
