If a binary stack can be used from memory only, it should not be 
necessary to write a script-only stack to disk.

Such a requirement prevents us from using script-only stacks in secure 
zero-footprint apps, such as those with the securityPermissions for 
"disk" turned off.

If you haven't filed a bug report I cam do that.

I think it's useful to report any behavioral differences between 
script-only and binary stacks, as they break the cardinal design mandate 
that the only difference be the storage format.
