This is off the top of my head and not tested at all, but here's the idea:

on savingStandalone
  put "stack1,stack2,stack3...stackn" into tStackList
  repeat for each item i in tStackList
    set the mainstack of stack i to "myMainStack"
    set the password of stack i to "somePassword"
  end repeat
end savingStandalone

Since the above doesn't change the original mainstack I don't think 
you'll need a standaloneSaved handler to undo the changes but see what 
happens. Make backups first.
