Only for read-only access as Devin described.

Since a stack is entirely RAM-resident, one user can open the stack, 
keep it open while others make changes, and then save the 
stack--undoing all changes made since he/she originally opened the 
file.

The most practical way I have found to do do this is via a db server 
app that supports record locking.  See
