This lists all kinds of variables that _do_ have a :group.  (Actually,
I believe it lists all customizable variables.)

Why does `M-x customize-group RET nil RET' work then?  If you evaluate:

(defcustom a 4 "c")

then the customizable variable `a' winds up listed there, together
with the other four.

What about nil's plist?
