How do I delete substacks?

The rub is that I have no idea how those resource stacks became substacks of
my main stack.  I am guessing it happened during  an attempt at building a
distribution.  Any ideas?

Hi Mark,

> How do I delete substacks?

See the dox -> delete stack

To delete a mainstack:
    delete stack "name of stack"

To delete a substack:
    delete stack "name of substack" of stack "name of mainstack"

Well... ehmm...
Let me put it this way: That would not be good! ;-)

Since YOU are writing the scripts (do you?) this should be easily 
avoidable ;-)
