Or maybe Customize should have a special :type that says that by default
it should display the sexp rather than the resulting value (i.e. as if
the user had used "Show Saved Lisp Expression").

As for the default... FWIW I have the following in my .emacs:

    (setq longlines-show-effect (propertize "¶\n\n" 'face 'escape-glyph))

I find the empty line very helpful.
