I usually do the thing where you put the open* handlers into the first
card of the mainstack. It's easiest.
If there are handlers that should be shared, but only with a few stacks,
I put those handlers into the mainstack and check in the first line of
the handler to see if the target is one of the stacks it needs to work
with, and if not it exits.
If almost everything needs to use the open* handlers except one or two
stacks, then I put the handlers into the mainstack stack script and put
blocking handlers into the stacks that are an exception.
So I guess the answer is...it depends.
