No. See my reply to Richard. I am not calling `widget-convert' or engaging
in any explicit widgetry at all. I just wrote a simple `defcustom'.

All I want is for `defcustom's :type expression to recognize the standard
types that are defined for Emacs by wid-edit.el - for example, `color'. It's
not a good thing for standard types not to be recognized by :type.

How the problem is fixed is a different problem. That you might not want to
load all of wid-edit.el unnecessarily is understandable. But it's not a
reason not to solve the problem (perhaps in another way).
