A nice feature, but you can also adjust the size of a stack by changing its
rect, which can be done leaving any corner or side of the window fixed in

For example, the following would reduce the stack's height from the top,
keeping the other 3 sides fixed:

 on mouseUp
   put rect of this stack into tRect
   add 30 to item 2 of tRect
   set rect of this stack to tRect
 end mouseUp
