Hi,

yesterday I did this command in my org-mode git repo:

   grep defcustom lisp/*el |wc -l

and got 378 as an answer.  378 user-customizable variables,
no kidding.

However, I bet that only about 10% of these are really used
by more that one user :-).  So when a new users starts digging
into Org-mode, they simply must be confused by the amount
of variables that can be set.

So here is the idea:  I would like to find out which variables
users actually customize.  This could be the basis
for a great article on Worg, describing just these selected
variables.

In addition, I could make a special customization group which only
contains those variables (Emacs allows to put a variable into several
groups).  It would be awesome to have, and a much easier start into
customizing Org.

So here is my question to all of you.  Could you, in reply to this
message, list all the Org-related variables that you have customized,
along with the values you used?

If you want to do more, I'd also love to see comments on

- why you set the variable like this
- if you feel that the default value of that variable
   should be different
- Any other comments you might what to give.

Of course, if there is a volunteer who would like to organize
this info into a Worg page, I would even be more happy ...

Thanks!

- Carsten
