Mark, my problem is that I loved the idea of script only stacks so got them
working (7 or more SoS's) that are loaded through the  Files tab of
Standalone Application builder. Obvious advantages are allowing me to
use GitHub and to collaborate as discussed.

I want to be able to build standalones often, and I cannot distribute the
code. So from what I understand I have to convert these back into standard
stacks every just before making a standalone, then load them thro the
Stacks tab (not Files tab). This is quite labour intensive. I do hope there
is an automated solution to be able to avoid this.

I could use Levure and would love to, but it's one more thing to learn and
I feel an overkill for me as all my scripts are now in SoS files.
