Here is the on-line help entry for the message.

saveStackRequest message

Sent to the current card when the stack is about to be saved.

on saveStackRequest -- delete all cards but the first
  repeat with x = the number of cards down to 2
    delete card x
  end if
  pass saveStackRequest -- or the stack won't be saved
end saveStackRequest

Handle the saveStackRequest message if you need to do cleanup or other actions before a stack is saved. For example, if the stack creates temporary objects that should not be saved with the stack, you can write a saveStackRequest handler to delete those objects before the stack is saved.

If the stack has not yet been saved, the standard Save dialog box appears. The saveStackRequest message is sent after the user clicks Save in this dialog box, and before the file is saved.

The save action is triggered by the saveStackRequest message. This means that trapping the saveStackRequest message and not passing it prevents the stack from being saved.

Any resemblance between the above and my own views is non-deterministic.

 The question of the existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold
