Stack rename itself

I have a stub executable that will open stacks so that the stacks can  
save themselves with their data.

I would like to be able to rename the stack file and other pertinent  
information so that there could be multiple versions of the stack  
personalized to different people.

I think what I want to do is similar to the way Revolution safely  
saves changes to a stack. It first renames the stack with a leading  
tilde saves a new version of the stack and then deletes the old  
version. This creates a safe save and is, more or less, what I want  
to do except be able to specify what the name would be.

I would also like to be able to control this because I plan on  
selling the stacks. It would be good to be able to manage the  
duplication of the stacks but that is probably a different discussion.

Any thoughts on these would be appreciated.
