It is an entirely different interface.

  (defalias 'set-variable 'customize-set-variable)


  (defalias 'set-variable 'customize-set-value)

would make sense though.  The difference is that the first uses the
:set function, the later doesn't.

Both also set the 'customized-value' property so the variable will not
be flagged as "modified outside customize" later.

And they both will use the :prompt-value property of the custom type
(if any) to make the input smarter in some cases.
