AfterStep-1.7 and wmconfig HOW-TO

I will assume you are running wmconfig-0.6 and the directories tree is
on ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/start (G/L/A/start , hereafter) .
1) goto G/L/A. Move start to start1 (wmconfig is destructive)
2) run wmconfig --output=afterstep --directories --no-promote  
3) create a file .include in G/L/A/start. This file only contains:
keepname
include "../start1"
4) Update startmenu

TIPS: 
1) I removed Applications from the original directories tree. wmconfig
is only for applications, that is why you should have backed up your
original tree.
2) Personally, I include --no-sysdir in step 2. All my config files
goes to .wmconfig (read wmconfig man pages). The group structure is
IMHO messed up in the RedHat defaults.
3) look at /etc/X11/wmconfig for examples.
