Here is just a difference of opinion. I think
Customize is *more* difficult and confusing
than to write code.

But even if it was simpler, which it isn't,
I wouldn't use it because writing code is much
more enjoyable and interesting.

Also, code opens the door to do anything.
With Customize, or any other code-producing
tool, you can only produce code that is
possible to produce with the tool. And what is
a computer tool? Code! Thus you, as
a programmer, are limited to what some other
programmer thought you should or shouldn't do.

Indeed, if anyone wants to use Customize, do
it. Just as if anyone wants to take their game
to the next level, it is right there.

Remember, "Advance to fast, you catch up with
death. But advance to slow, death catches up
with YOU!"
