Uh.  I think I see.  The doc says (in About... messages and the 
message path), " Messages sent to a substack are passed next to the 
substack's main stack."

I have been putting library-like scripts in groups.  I'd like to 
consider library stacks.  Would these be substacks if I want to 
include them in the same file?  Or am I looking that the 
organization wrong?

Would the main stack be in the message path twice?  That is, both 
before the library stacks and after?

I appreciate everybody's comments.  Concerning controls and groups 
with scripts...  Should reusable controls and groups go in the 
Revolution object library?  Should those associated with a library 
stack be put on a card in that stack for easy copying?
