I would assume it means:

"This stack" - the current topstack only
"This stack file" - the current main stack and all its substacks
"This stack file and its stack files" - the current main stack, its 
substacks, and if you have assigned anything to the "stackfiles" 
property, all those stacks too. I'm not sure if this would include the 
substacks of all the stackfiles stacks.

If you haven't ever used stackfiles, it is a property you can set that 
allows you to refer to other stacks on disk using a short name rather 
than supplying a full path as a reference.
