Right, there are really several issues to check if you want to be thorough: if the stack is open (among the openStacks), if the stack is visible, and if the stack is on screen.

Opie here; hide and show do what I need; I just want to hide it. But 
how, other than asking here, was I to discover the name of that 
stack? I poked all over including message-box asking the name of 
stack n from 1 to 10, which turned up a bunch of stuff but not 
"revTools". It seems it has an ID but not a number. Hmm.

But Colin is most correct, and asking "visible" of window/stack 
returns true whether you can see it or not. Hmm.
