ok, but this was already fixed.

It's already a bit like this : in 1.5preX (since 1.4.N.?), you can move
Look/ and other dirs somewhere else in the hierarchy : they're
automatically filled with looks, feels, bgs...

You'll soon be able to ann _include_defaults_ in a dir to include all
corresponding usr/local/share/afterstep/start options

BTW, would you like to join coders team ?
We've still about 15-20 bugs to fix before 1.5.0
