In addition to all of the benefits Chipp outlined, my favorite thing
about stacks is how conveniently they can be used for general data storage.
Using custom properties of a stack gives you a way to store different
types of data in a single file with tremendous ease and efficiency.
If you need to keep track of hierarchically-ordered data you can use
custom property sets in stackstacks, cards, and any groups or controls
within those cards.
