So, would one of these be better?

go invisible stack "revdatagridlibrary.rev"?

or just

open stack "revdatagridlibrary.rev"?

It seems to be working now with "start using" in preOpenStack... are there any problems we should be looking out for in particular? Or is it as simple as the data grid just won't work?
