Yes

In actuality all you need is a simple splash screen or title stack 
that opens your main stack (or presents an answer file dialog) in its 
openStack or preopenStack handler.  Employee Database.rev includes 
substack EmpDD as a template for building a new stack.  Unless you 
are allowing the user to create new stacks, Employee Database.rev is 
overkill.
