There is no need to go to a stack before one starts using it.
In fact, going to the library may trigger open/preOpen handlers that
do things that are unnecessary or interfere with its role as a
library. (If a Library needs to initialize when put in use, do it in
a libraryStack handler.)
Have the stack that can't find the handlers list the stacksInUse for
you just before making the call. If your library stack is on the
list and the handler called is in the library stack script, it should
One possible gottcha: if you have a function, foo, in the library
stack and call it as a command in the button script, you will get a
"handler not found" error. Likewise if you have a command, foo, and
call it as a function.
