I think the limitation is in the default permissions of the cgi folder,
which is almost always set not to allow file creation. You generally
can't create new text files in there either. I think you should be able
to create a new stack in a folder somewhere else that has permissions
set for the cgi account (whose group I always forget, is it "nobody"?
Something like that.) The same thing happens if you try to save an
existing stack that lives in the cgi folder. It won't save, because the
auto-backup that Rev makes while saving can't be created.
