No, it can be created very simply with a 

(defgroup peoples-choice '((require-final-newline custom-variable)
                           (font-lock custom-group)
                           (user-mail-address custom-variable)
                           (text-mode-hook custom-variable) ; for auto-fill
  "Popular customization options.")

It doesn't specify a value though, just list the most popular options.

I tried to merge the Emacs and XEmacs files, but got tired of trying
to find consensus for minor code policy differences, and just doing a
port didn't hold my interest.  Although my attempt at a merge could
be considered a port, if someone else would resolve the remaining
policy questions to the Emacs side.  Then again, there have probably
been too much code drift since that for my old merge to be used.

<address@hidden> volunteered to do a port, and reported some success, I
don't heard anything later.
