One easy way would be to open your substack as modeless when calling 
it in your main stack. Look up modeless command in the docs.

Tip: code it so if holding the alt key down, this mode is not invoked 
and the stack opens as toplevel. This way, you can easily get to edit 
it, should there be a need.
