Referencing a stack that is not open

Can anyone tell me what exactly happens when you ask for information about a
stackfile that is not open?  For example, say on your desktop you have a
stackfile named "testStack.rev" and you call this:

put the customKeys of stack "/Users/Jimbo/Desktop/testStack.rev"

Rev WILL report the correct data.  However, the stack doesn't appear to have
actually been opened.  What actually happens?  Did Revolution read the
entire stack file, get the requested data, then flush it from memory?  Did
it read only what it needed?

Any insight would be appreciated.
