Thats very nice, but I have he filling that the GNUStep/Library/ directory
is just a waste. Why didn't they put it all in a ~/Afterstep/ directory.
But it is a bit beter when you get used to it.

But, cheer up, Afetrstep is just in version 1.4.5. It's in it's beginings.
It's not like Emacs or TeX or Sendmail that are rough and tough and will
deal with anything, and why not they have lots of years on there
shoulders. I think we have to learn something from this expirience.
