Cloned cards are identical in every respect except their ID, so the 
cantDelete property should stay the same.

But I'm confused about what you need to do. At first you said you were 
duplicating "substacks" and that your changes didn't stick. But a 
substack is part of the mainstack file, and any changes would be 
immediate. So maybe you didn't really mean "substack", you meant you 
were opening separate document stacks.

If that's the case, then setting the stack's destroystack property to 
true will remove it from memory when you close it, and you should never 
see the original again when you open a clone of the same name.
