Best Practice: Prevent Substacks from Triggering Main Stack Scripts

If you put any preopenstack, resizestack, close stack etc. script in the 
mainstack script.. these will be triggered by the same action in a substack.

What is the best way to avoid this?

I just moved all those to the main background group of the main stack, 
but I'm not happy with that architecture. I'm so
use to running most script in the main stack script for simplicity sake 
and ease of finding things.

I suppose one can install "dummy" handlers in the substacks to match.

on preopenstack
end preopenstack

and since you are not passing anything, I suspect it will prevent 
triggering that handler in the main stack..

But, what are you veterans doing to handle this?
