I think we're each looking at this from different perspectives.
My objective is to compare two versions of the same stack file and list the
differences between them, that's it. All the data collected about the
stack would be have to be keyed by object ids (perhaps with the exception
of stacks and images) in order to do that, I think, since names can and do
change and a name change would be something you'd want to know about.
Isn't there some sort of user-assigned id available? That could help.
There's definitely challenges to anything beyond that. I have a feeling
that trying to recreate a stack would be a nightmare and Version control is
certainly a complex subject.
