Well, unfortunately it isn't, but thanks for the suggestion.  AfterStep's
default feel overrides Ctrl-v "globally", preventing the standard PgDn
(scroll-up) sequence from working in Emacs.

This is completely unacceptable for an Emacs user like myself.  IMO, this
should be in a Windows-CUA feel which is "not" the default.

I'd also like to add my own custom menus (which means a local
non-configurable), but have as yet not gotten afterstep to allow this and
still leave the Look, Feel, and Pictures menus in the Desktop menu.

That does seem to be a problem.  Seems like for these paths in the
AfterStep config files, AfterStep ought to first try to pull from the
user's local area, and then from the global.
