If you copy the files from /u/s/a to ~/G/L/A, AfterStep will use the
files there instead. 

This is a smart thing to do if your computer has more than one
AfterStep user, since these users will then be able to have different
configurations. (You configure the files in ~/G/L/A, the files in
/u/s/a are left unused.)
