Severity: wishlist

[ resent from
  http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2009-03/msg00002.html ]

Regarding this change,

       :group 'find-file
       :version "23.1"
    -  :type '(choice (other :tag "Always" t)
    -		 (const :tag "After completion" after-completion)
    -		 (const :tag "Never" nil)))
    +  :type '(choice (const :tag "After completion" after-completion)
    +		 (const :tag "Never" nil)
    +		 (other :tag "Always" t)))

perhaps compiling defcustom should give an error if :other appears
other than last.
