I asked you to become interested, but only in the defcustom.  I never
said anything about NEWS etc.  It's a simple request that should have
taken just a few moments of your time.  I was astonished by your flat

And if that doesn't drive the point home, then I have nothing else to
say in this matter.

Sorry, but part of _my_ job here is to "insist".

Most, if not all people whom I ask to make such small amendments (and
also similar other ones, like reword the doc strings, rename
variables, make some behavior optional, etc.) just do it.  I'm asked
to do similar things in other projects, where I'm just one of many
contributors.  Why you think it's unreasonable is beyond me.
