I know this sounds too easy, but since you can say:
edit script of stack "/mydisk/revdocs/thisStack.rev"
in the Message Box, I'd assume you could also say:
answer the mainStack of stack "/mydisk/revdocs/thisStack.rev"
answer the substacsk of stack "/mydisk/revdocs/thisStack.rev"
Does this not work?
