Thanks for the great explanation. I'll see how all this integrates with
gnutls.el. The dynamic customization suggestion sounds very similar to
the Gnus group/topic customization logic, which generates customization
logic as well. I also think there's an interesting connection with
dir-local variables, which also have the concepts of context sensitivity
and hierarchy.
