There are multiple ways to do this defcustom, I can't guess what you
want it to be called, or its type, or its default value.  So maybe "a
few moments" of typing the code, but definitely not of design.

Would you rather I had rather silently ignored you?  I gave reasons for
being against the change, just as Dmitry did when he also expressed
opposition.  Then I added "...so I won't do that change myself." meaning
that while I don't think it's a very good idea, I won't try to stop
anyone else from doing it.  If anything, I was trying to make _less_
attrition by writing that.

It's _not_ unreasonable, it's perfectly fine to suggest changes.  In
fact I do it all the time.  What's unreasonable, and frankly a bit
saddening (for me) is call others "unfriendly" when encountering the
smallest justified opposition to a given suggestion.
