The splash screen stack becomes the standalone's main stack... the
application stack, I guess you could say.  The other stacks are substacks of
this stack, but since they are not directly part of the application they can
save changes written to them.  The docs say somewhere that because
applications are read-only on certain platforms, for cross-platform
consistency this feature was built into Revolution.  At least that is my
understanding of the scheme of things.
