setdecor ignores added/removed decorators

"setdecor -l" will only list the decorates in ~/config/add-ons/decorators at boot time ignoring any added until after the next boot.

"setdecor -l" will persist in displaying the boot time list even if a decorator is removed from that folder after boot leaving the displayed list out of date.

You can set a listed decorator when the file is moved from ~/config/add-ons/decorators suggesting they're all pre-loaded at boot time.

Apparently the resulting list from "setdecor -l" is technically correct but not necessarily what the user might expect when the decorator file is taken from the folder.

I don't know if it's a requirement of appserver, etc. but with the potential of an arbitrary # of decorators, is preloading the wisest design going forward?

I guess the design will have to be rethought anyway, in the future, since currently with a decorator addon you can screw the whole system.
