On startup it chooses the look/feel file you chose last time.
On "update all" it only parses the look-/feel-directory for
files and creates the appropriate look/feel menu.

Note: when you choose a look/feel, afterstep internally makes
a copy of it and stores it in the non-configurable/ directory.
So, next time afterstep starts up, it just uses the look/feel
files in this non-configurable/ directory.


Happiness lies in being privileged to work hard for
long hours in doing whatever you think is worth doing.
