I don't know if it (== multiple versions provided by Debian et al)
applies to Darcs or bzr, but both of those have serious cross-version
incompatibilities and "I can't/won't upgrade" is a regular theme on
both lists.  The ability to easily test user-installed versions
provided by the defcustom is very useful to their users.

For bzr, it is mildly important *not* to change the status quo.  Emacs
developers especially will be hurt if bzr doesn't allow pointing to a
user-installed bzr, as every recent bzr release has improved
