[Server] create stack trouble

I started to work on a project involving server stacks and had to stop full
stop... here is why :

Servers stacks are designed as SCRIPT CONTAINERS, allowing to password
protect scripts on the server and develop libraries. Card creation, field
creation and navigation are crippled and do not allow a more standard use of
stacks, as a structured data container. Re-use of standard stacks will fail
for many reasons with the command go stack. Loading stacks as libraries with
the "start using.." threw the same error on loading when first card had a
button or fields on it. So id' rather call'em server LIBRARIES than stacks.

details :

of course it would be great for some of you to counter test these findings,
update this memo and let us know,
and communicate with mothership those who are in close contacts.

It would be great to know what these server stacks are aimed at, will they
gradually (..years!) come to par with standard stacks or are they INTENDED
as stack libraries full stop!? Thanks, RObert.
