`custom-set-variables` explicitely does not evaluate the expressions
passed as arguments, while `csetq' does, like `setq' itself. Moreover, I
wanted to write this macro with the aim of being as close as possible
to `setq'’s syntax.

I did not know this macro existed, it seems to be indeed close to what
I intended. My only issue with it is you still have to quote the
custom variable you want to set, unlike `setq'.
| (setopt 'custom-var1 value1
|         'custom-var2 value2)
| ;; vs
| (csetq custom-var1 value1
|        custom-var2 value2)
