on the subject of menus, i thought i would just breifly bring this up
for those of you using gnome or kde, there is a script to import
the gnome and kde menus into AS. look in the tools/ directory
for 'importasmenu'

i must also briefly mention the flexability of .include

in my ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/start/mp3s dir, i have a .include :

keepname
include "/share/mp3s" Exec asmp3.sh

then my script asmp3.sh :

#!/bin/sh
xmms -p "$*"

[note this will play playlists, and the startmenu will list nested
directories and the files in them as well.]

this is just a sample of what .include it can do, perhaps mp3s, images
if youre feeling masochistic i suppose file viewing, etc.
man afterstep, look at the startmenu and internal commands sections 
for more ideas.

keep in mind however, the bigger the menu gets, the more mem AS uses.
