Accessing other stacks in LibCGI

I usually stick to using text files with libCGI, I never tried a 
content stack like that. I would suggest you try one of these:

First option:  Make agenda a substack of your mainstack, this way it 
would load anyway.

Second option: try using go invisible stack <filepath>, on your 
libraryStack handler, load agenda this way, so when you need to 
performe any command, it will be in memory.

Tell me if you managed that.
