In think Alex meant that the button "move substacks to separate folder" 
in the distribution builder moves all substacks.  But you don't have to 
use this.  Stick any stacks you like in the data folder manually and 
reference them from the app using the defaultFolder & "/data/" & 
yourStackName.  Then just don't click the button and you can have some 
stacks in the data folder and others (not save-able) retained in the 
standalone file.

Is that what you meant?
