Probably not. As far as I can tell, `reset-face' is a general
facility designed into faces, but was never used until
`face-spec-set', which I believe is a Custom facility.
`face-spec-set' is used only by Custom, and only in one or two places.
I don't have the entire SUMO package, but I do have about 30 packages
plus the core Lisp, and grepping through those shows only the hits
I've mentioned. Now that I've studied Custom a little bit, I'm fairly
confident that my original patch would not break any existing code
(but can't be sure, of course), and rather more confident that
changing `face-spec-set' won't break anything else, since it is a
Custom internal function.
Changing `face-spec-set' is the safer, more conservative approach. I
don't like the third idea of saving 'default for reasons discussed in
a separate post.
