What you seem to be missing is that stacks *are* applications.  Not
having them run as applications when you double click on them would be
roughly equivalent to double clicking on most executables on your
system starting up Codewarrior if you happened to have that installed
(i.e., just because it was produced with that tool doesn't make it a
"document" of that tool).  And of course anyone that uses MetaCard to
build custom utilties for themselves or their companies will be very
disappointed to have the whole development environment start up each
time they ran one of these tools.

Nevertheless, a way open the development environment together with the
stack (probably by holding down the control key when double-clicking
or something) is planned for a future release.
