I don't have a strong opinion on that, but I think it's important to
realize that depending on the circumstances, the custom-set-variables
call may have to come before some of the user's config as well as it may
also have to come after some of the user's config.

IOW if Emacs just loads ~/.emacs.d/custom.el before ~/.emacs.d/emacs.el
some things will break, and same thing if it swaps the order.
