The change is because the canonical place for preferences /  
customization is in the user's ~/Library/Preferences/AppName/  
directory on Mac OS X.

Also, I find it sensible to separate user-editable configuration code  
from material that is written and overwritten by Aquamacs ("Save  

You can easily customize the `custom-file'  in your .emacs, setting it  
to "~/.emacs" itself:

(setq custom-file "~/.emacs")

Aquamacs will respect that and ignore the customizations.el file.

Note that, however, the customization that Aquamacs writes is not  
guaranteed to be compatible with other Emacsen; some customization  
variables (specifically `text-mode-hook') will contain calls to  
functions not present in other Emacs variants.
