The terminology's tricky. By convention, a "substack" is part of the
same stackfile as the main stack, it's sort of bolted on. When built
into a standalone, it can't be modified because it's the same file on
disk as the main stack. Substacks are appendages.
There's no official term for those working stacks that aren't attached
to the main stack. I call them "satellite" stacks, but that's just me.
But they're separate files on disk, still in stack form, and the
standalone opens them like they're documents (which they are) and they
can be modified and saved.
We need an official term for those separate stacks that ship with
