----

If you use a :set entry for defcustom, it is not respected by
`set-variable'.  It should be.  When a user uses `M-x set-variable' s?he
should get the effect of :set.  Otherwise, the defcustom is not serving
its purpose.  defcustom is not only for Customize - it needs to work
with `set-variable' also.  And it does, for :type; but it does not, for
:set.
