Stacks whose names start with "rev"

Yeah, we plan to change the name for the next release in January. The 
author of each courseware title names its sections and he named this one 
"Revelation as Apocalypse". It's currently in use by this semester's 
students, but he's agreed to a different name for next semester.

The main thing I needed to know is whether there was an easier way to edit 
the stack than what we were doing. It seems there isn't. The edit was minor 
and was done via the message box. I think there's a bug in there somewhere 
but it isn't worth pursuing right now. The bizarre warning message was also 
particularly strange, and I'm curious where that came from.
