I use a couple of my own stacks: a stack launcher and a function key
handler, to replace some of the Home stack's features. In HC, I used
to have a lot of my own handlers in the Home stack's stack script, but
in Rev, I prefer to have that sort of thing on a project-by-project
basis and not as a permanent front or backScript.

If you wanted to replace something from HC, I reckon a much better
investment would be a provide a modern equivalent of the HC stacks
that included a bunch of sample fields and buttons.
