@LCMark I feel bad snipping discussion of the array literals because… AWESOME!!!  but I actually only wanted to comment on `createStack` feelign a bit wrong if we also have `newStack` and the `create stack` command would send `newStack` not `createStack`.. or maybe it would send both but you can see why I have an issue with it ;-)
