all the afterstep stuff is in afterstep. please leave it in one directory which makes it
easier for backing up. every once in a while i just tar up the Afterstep directory so
that if something happens or i want to set up afterstep on another machine I can just
get that tar and use it, all config options set. my $0.02.
