You mean, keep the default Feels/Looks as well as custom ones?  If you 
only care about seeing the ones in ~/G/L/A, just create an empty dir in 
the start menu called "Look" and/or "Feel", and it will be automagically 
filled in when the menu is updated.

If you want to see both the defaults and the custom ones, get the 1.7 
patches and experiment with .include files.

Yup, it was an easy fix. :)  Fixed in 1.7.0 patch 18.
