The home stack is the licensing stack (the main stack of the file
"license.rev"). You can see where it is by querying the long name of stack

This stack is password-protected, so you can't add things to its script.
Unlike in HyperCard, the Home stack isn't a place for custom additions. The
best way, as I think Jan said, is to create a plugin. You can have plugins
open automatically at startup (and if you want a frontScript or backScript,
they can insert the necessary objects during their openStack handlers).
