        Actually, I think it’d be nice to have /both/ a key binding for
        the above (say, ‘E’) /and/ a separate key binding (say, ‘e’) to
        call customize-variable, – if the variable is indeed declared
        customizable.  The code for the latter would probably be just a
        few lines long, and the formed could use something like:

(let ((eval-expression-minibuffer-setup-hook
       (cons (lambda ()
               (insert (format "(setq %S %S)"
                               ;; FIXME: double-check the following
                               (if (consp variable-value)
                                   (list 'quote variable-value)
  (call-interactively 'eval-expression))
