Temporary custom properties

You could create a field, graphic, or button, you decide, on opening  
your stack and set its custom properties to whatever you want.  Then  
on closestack you could delete the object.

You could also set the cProperty1, cProperty2, cProperty3 of an  
existing objectX (whatever object you want... card, stack, button,  
etc) to myValues, and then on closing the stack set the  cProperty1,  
cProperty2, cProperty3 of objectX back to empty.

But out of curiosity, why not use globals?
