With all due respect, Geoff, yes there is.

Look at the SDB Utilities stack: in has no background named "revLibraries"

Use the Distribution Builder to create a SDB Utilities 
standalone...it WILL contain a background "revLibraries".

You can confirm this more easily by placing different logic in the 
prePpenStack script (if there is a background "revLibraries" then 
beep, answer, etc.).  You WILL find the handler response of the stack 
different from the response of the standalone.  (At least I do.)
