Sort of, but not quite. The stack file format doesn't matter; the way
the settings are stored is related to the distribution and the way its
standalone builder works. In Rev 2.7, the SB was rewritten to store
standalone settings as custom properties. I routinely save stacks in
legacy format and they still retain their custom property standalone
settings. If users will be running stacks in Rev 2.6.1 then you need to
provide the right support files.
