in many cases, you have to load a module before being able to
customize it; if you load many modules from your init file, Emacs will
be slow to start up. The special form 'eval-after-load' allows you to
customize a module after it is autoloaded.

An other point is that neither solution will work well if the default
contents of the ps-right-header variable change in the future.
