Actually Kee, after you change the mainstck of the
substack, you can save the former substack to disk,
and then save the former mainstack to disk, and then
you have achieved what you wanted without any
deleting.

Even more fun is that you can do this using the
Inspector palette : go to the substack, and change the
mainstack by means of the popupmenu.
