There haven't been such plans, but we will take a look at it, as it's now
being requested... We packed up Afterstep 1.0 and included it because it was
the last version we really liked, and no-one had said anything one way or
another.  (Of course, that was at least a year ago..)

For the most part, window managers are placed where their supporting libraries
and programs also belong.  Unless we change the organization of our whole tree,
that's not likely to change.
