When I use asymptotemk, it generates a whole bunch of files that are 
_not_ deleted by use of the TeXShop console's "Trash Aux Files" button.

How can one change the TeXShop configuration so that these additional 
files are so deleted?

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
