any reason to store in documents instead of in library?
it seems like there might be less of a chance of the user misusing the
Files app to break the app.

ah. that's a better way of handling this. i was going to have the app
check the documents folder for updates, before loading a stack, but if i
keep the source stacks, there, it will work better.

You can't add or change anything inside the app bundle so downloaded
have to go in specialFolderPath("documents"). Copy the originals from the
resources folder to the documents folder on first launch so you always
a known file path location. Any file in documents will be overwritten
the new download if the file name is the same.
