Only the start dir is parsed into the menu.  Multiple menus are possible, 

To create the two menus:

cd ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/start
mkdir menu1
mv * .include menu1
echo 'keepname' >> menu1/.include
echo 'name startmenu' >> menu1/.include
mkdir menu2
echo 'keepname' > menu2/.include
echo 'name OftenUsed' >> menu2/.include
echo 'Exec "AfterStep terminal" exec aterm &' > menu2/aterm

If any .include files in your menu (such as those for Look, Feel, and 
Pictures) use relative paths, you will need to change them.

Then modify your feel as follows:

#Mouse 1        R       A       PopUp "0"
Mouse 1         R       A       PopUp "startmenu"
Mouse 2         R       A       PopUp "OftenUsed"

... and do an Update All.
