I would. Inheritance only applies to properties not explicitly set.
Good to know. I wasn't really sure about it. But I guess I still
have to fix this in AUCTeX if we want to have scaling of faces for

I'm not sure what's going on here. Customize has never worked very

which do most of what Customize can do, but for some reason the
porters of Customize chose to implement Customize separately from
At least the inheritance problem is also present if the XEmacs API for
faces is used exclusively:
(make-face-size 'foo 24)
(set-face-parent 'foo 'default)
