You can save information in a standalone to a substack of the 
standalone, just not to the mainstack.  For example, you could make 
make your opening splash screen  your main stack, and have any number 
of substacks affiliated with that main stack.  This is how you save 
information without writing it to the mainstack, which can't be done, 
you're right.
