I think the `v' info popup would be good regardless of the rest.

The `describe-variable' popup already has a link to the customization
interface but the in-place-editing would be really nice.  Perhaps it
could be implemented as an accordion-style interface (like in
`customize-group') so it's hidden by default, yet you don't need to hit
a link and go to a different buffer to use it.
