+      (new) enum UCustomPathnameType
+  To enable appropriate GUI widget handling, 'pathname' custom
+  variable should provide the information whether the path is regular
+  file or directory.
+  Valid form for the pathname type on define-custom has been
+  changed. 4th argument for it must contain the type information. See
+  the real example of skk-custom.scm and im-custom.scm.
+  And since the changes break the uim-custom API, all programs using
+  libuim-custom must follow it. Although it broke uim-custom API, the
+  uim API and ABI (libuim) is not changed.
