When resolving requests for file access, SDB stacks/standalones look:

    * In the same folder as the stack/standalone.
    * In a PlugIn folder in the stack/standalones' folder
    * In a Data folder in the stack/standalone's folder
    * In the specialFolderPath, "Documents" on Windows
    * In a Data folder in the folder containing the application bundle 
on Mac OS X.
    * In a PlugIn folder in the folder containing the application 
bundle on Mac OS X.
    * In the folder containing the application bundle on Ma OS X.

None of the above locations works elegantly for a stack in 
Revolution's Plugin folder.  In my development environment, for 
example, the folder I'm working in isn't even in the Revolution 
folder.
