Just a thought: maybe you could
-make a snapshot of your screen, 
-show that in a separate "snapshot" stack C, 
-hide the "working" stack A, 
-show the "progress" stack B

And then do your changes offscreen while giving the
user the illusion everything is still there?

I'm sure there's some way to make a snapshot of a
screen, if necessary through an XFCN.
