I'm grateful for the addition, but I think user options ought to also
make sense to the user.

Sorry, the emphasis in my last message was meant to be on the lack of
any description of the user option's arglist.  If the defcustom is to
refer the user elsewhere, that place might at least have a docstring.

Though I don't understand why the user would be presented with internal
functions as options (it makes it harder to distinguish internal from
external definitions and APIs), I don't feel strongly enough about it to
argue against it.
