Yes, this is true - actually when you loaded the mainstack, all of its
substacks get loaded into memory automatically and can't be purged until the
mainstack itself is closed.

Well, as I mentioned above, closed substacks are still in memory if the
mainstack is, so you could check for the mainstack in "the windows" or in
"the stacks" to see if it is in memory.

You can also use "the mainstacks" to get a list of stacks that are in
