Here is an idea for your consideration:


    Add a customization option such as 'customize-existing' which fills
    a customize buffer only with currently customized settings.  A
    related command for faces might be 'customize-existing-faces'.

Problem Solved:

    Moving a laptop between the office and home requires customization
    changes in gnus, for example.  The variables which need to change
    are in different groups, however, and are hard to find.

    A 'customize-existing' command would put all of the variables into
    one buffer for quick locating and changing.

A Minor Detail:

    The settings in the buffer should be sorted first by their group,
    and then alphabetically within the group.
