I don't think it's even necessary to mark the Emacs 23 variables as
obsolete for 24.1; we can save that for Emacs 24.2.

Because it is so late in the game, now that we've settled on a workable
design the objective should be to get the basic code "infrastructure"
and the old the Emacs 23 variables work.  Making a rich set of Custom
interfaces to that design can wait.

For example, I would not spend time on the defcustom definitions for
display-buffer-alist and display-buffer-default-rule, if that proves
complicated---you could just make them defvars for now.
