i understand that this is what has been proposed, i was responding to someone that
suggested putting fines in /etc/afterstep and /usr/share/afterstep. i just though that
doing this would make it more difficult to do backups quickly. but he is right,
splitting them up makes things more consistent with the unix file structure. i just dont
like the way the unix file structure works. i like mac, move the directory, you move the
app. :)

anyway, just what i thought was important.
