When you clone a stack, it creates the clone in memory with no specific file
location. It's also created with a "Copy of <stackName>" name, which you
might want to set as well. You need to set the 'filename' property of the
cloned stack and then save the stack, as in:
clone stack "bts/template.rev"
set the name of it to "MyStack"
set the filename of stack "MyStack" to "bts/mycopy.rev"
save stack "MyStack"
