Or you could just read in the actual stacks to use from a document, put the info into a field, and put a mouseUp handler in the field that responds to the clickLine to launch the chosen stack. Then all you would have to do is to add or change information in the document. You could hav the launcher read from the document automatically in time, or at start up.
