A standalone must have a stack attached to it, but it need not be visible.

Your standalone can set its own mainstack's visibility to false when it 
opens, and then open your savable stack file.

I almost never put an about box in my standalones, since I change those 
as often as I change anything else.

Most of my standalones contain only a warning window letting the user 
know that the app couldn't find resources it needs to run (that is, the 
various other stacks I use outside the standalone).  Unless something 
goes horribly wrong the user never sees that window.
