Note that as long as the `setq` is within the magicalcustom-autogenerated-user-sett
ings form, it will behave correctly even
if the variable has a setter function. The difference will only affect
those users who take this code and then copy it elsewhere.But setq doesn't have any concrete benefit other than familiarity to people who don't understand custom. I've spent more time than I wish on Freenode #emacs teaching people about custom. If c-s-v was used consistently that effort would be made a lot easier.The problem I have with c-s-v is that I don't see its benefits for configs like this:
Can you maybe enlighten me about what problem c-s-v solves that would have me start to use it?
