Using that creates a large number of auxiliary files other than the 
usual ones for an ordinary LaTeX run. How does one change the TeXShop 
configuration so that clicking the "Trash Aux Files" button on the 
console deletes those, too?

You need only activate the ``latexmk engines'' by moving them from ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/Latexmk/ two folders up, to ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ (note: ~/Library/ is the Library folder in your HOME folder --- if you are using Lion you can get to it by pressing the Option Key and Clicking on Finder's Go menu) and resstarting TeXShop. To tell TeXShop that a .tex file should use the asymptotemk engine place the line
