Right. There are actually three name-type properties:
1. filename: the name the stack is stored as by the operating system; a
part of the file path. The file on disk can contain a mainstack only, or
a mainstack along with many substacks. Example: myStackSuite.rev
2. name: the name of a single stack, usually completely different than
the filename. Often it is fairly short so that typing it in scripts is
faster. Example: fabStk
3. title: the name that appears in the stack's title bar. If no title is
supplied and this property is empty, the stack name is used instead by
default. (If a space is supplied as the title, the title bar displays no
name at all.) Example: "My Fabulous Stack"
