Stack IDs are variable by design.  They are potentially useful in only 
rare cases, and the recommended method to refer to stacks is to use the 
long name, which is always unique.

In order to have an ID system which generated a unique ID for all stacks 
it would have to keep track of all stacks and substacks on all computers 
used by all users worldwide in real time.

I'd prefer they spend their time addressing request #624.  Much higher 
ROI potential. :)
