The suffix `-style' defines variations of basically the same contents
(cf. custom-buffer-style with values `brackets' and `links').

>From all proposed names I think the least bad is `startup-buffer-choice' or
`initial-buffer-choice'.  Even though the suffix `-choice' is unnecessary,
at least it is true and exactly represents the fact that this user option
has the customization type `choice'.
