Yes, there are more. Here is approximately the list of binaries
in the current AS:
Animate    Audio      Auto       Banner     Cascade    Clean
Form       Ident      Pager      Save       Script     Scroll
Sound      Tile       Wharf      WinList    Zharf      afterstep

The asapps cannot harm the afterstep itself. If they
have problems they will simply fail to start but the
window manager should be running still.
