Does this include removing individual customize settings by simply
deleting them from the file? I sometimes do that...
Dunno. Feel free to read the source of the code that implements
custom.el munging. ;-)
IIRC, however, that may not work if you do other customization via the
M-x customize family. The reason is that basically when you save
settings, it doesn't edit the file, it dumps the current internal
database of customize settings to it. So if you edit customize, then
do custom-save-all in the same session, you lose your manual edits.
Maybe it should be created with a comment to that effect at the top?
Of course, that would only help people who are just starting out with
a new ~/.xemacs, but even so...
Good idea, and probably more effective than you think (see above).
Issue #742 (just a feature request at this point, but it will show up
when people are looking for things to do).
