I have to say, I'm not following the logic of this thread.  Sure, you can
run the same stack on different platforms, but you need platform-specific
engines to view those stacks.  There is currently no such thing as a
universal application (unless maybe you include some Java thing but even
then I would think you need a platform specific engine/viewer).

Except that exe files will not run on Mac systems.

I would suggest delivering your stacks/projects in the format suited to each
platform.  If your deliverable consists of stacks only, then there's your
universal format --  you just have to make sure a platform-specific engine
is available on the receiving end.
