Well, you're going to run into problems with changing scripts at runtime -
there are script limits (10 lines I believe) that you can change from a
standalone, so that's not going to work for you most likely.
Better approach would be to set a custom property in the stack that
identifies whether it can be saved or not. For example, you could set the
"uCantSave" of a stack to "true" to prevent the ability of saving the stack
my modifying the closeStack handler as follows:
put the short name of this stack into sName
if sName <> "mc" and (the uCantSave of this stack is not "true") then
answer "Do you want to save this stack?" with "yes" or "no"
if it is "yes" then
save this stack as stack "myStack"
set the uCantSave of stack "myStack" to true
save stack "myStack" -- make the property change permanent
