custom-save-variables and custom-file

Recently I was a bit annoyed when I realized that a call to
customize-save-variable had inserted a `custom-set-variables' at the
end of my .emacs. I prefer to edit it by hand. Well, after some
digging in the code I realized that the solution for people like me
is obvious: I gave the variable custom-file the value

However, I suggest that the "docstrings" inserted by
custom-save-variables and custom-save-faces in custom-file should
mention the variable custom-file. Then it is immediately obvious for
people like me what they need to do when they find the lines
(custom-set-variables ...) and (custom-set-faces ...) in their .emacs.
