I'll agree that the interface of Customize is a bit clunky, but
it's a good way to learn what values are available for each

I don't think it's good to teach newcomers that `setq' is better,
because many user options depend on custom setters that aren't
fired by a simple `setq'. Customize is more portable and works
with everything.
