Short name and long name

Let's say a user creates a stack from one of my templates, then later in 
the Finder, changes its name. Now there's a discrepancy between the 
short name and the long name. Is that a problem or does Rev understand 
this? Or should I construct a routine to parse the file name out and set 
the name to correct for this?

I'm trying to think of everything that could go wrong with my 
application in the hands of others and account for it. It's a lot easier 
to write apps for your own use (which is what I mostly do), where you 
understand the logic and tend not to do anything to mess things up (most 
of the time!) . . .
