Any stacks that are *not* part of a standalone can be modified and saved.
Stacks that are made into standalone applications, and any included
substacks, can be modified but not saved.  If you want to save changes to a
stack that is part of a standalone distribution, you need to store the stack
outside of the standalone.  This concept is similar to using a text
application to modify/save a text file, or a graphics application to
modify/save an image file.
