gratuitous inclusion of oracle in 7.0.2-RC2

I have a project where there was a main stack with some subs stacks, and the whole size was 100 MB. Probably 4000 cards + 200 images.
It was taken maybe 15+ minutes to build.

I took out the large sub stacks and keep them separate in a data folder. Now it takes seconds to build a launcher stack that opens all the other stacks. This makes updating files easier as well.
