Well, we've made a construct where the customized struct apps are  
stored on a shared network drive and these are imported as text inset  
in the default struct apps file. So maintenance on these apps is not a  
problem.

Only when we made a new FrameMaker install and modified the struct  
apps file for this (imported the text insets) the new apps were not  
available for new users.....
