OK, so when it gets not so simple, one should
not rely on Customize anymore. But if one
cannot solve so simple things without relying
on Customize, how can one be expected to solve
things that are not so simple suddenly?

Apart from the principle, Customize is not
easier than to put a couple of lines of code
into a text file. Customize is much more
complicated and I don't want to ever rely on
complicated stuff, and certainly not for doing
simple things.
