The only really convenient way to use functions in other stacks is to  
put those other stacks 'in use', so that their scripts are in the  
message path.

I'm not very clear on which stack is requesting what from where, but  
it sounds like you're loading a stack into a local machines memory  
from a remote server - so this should be possible.
