Unfortunate to see complication after complication pile up from the 
IDE's insistence that stacks with the same name should not be in memory 
at the same time.

As we've discussed earlier, the engine does not appear to have such a 
limitation for most operations.

The real issue at the root of all this is the subset of actions 
performed on stacks with the same name affecting the wrong stack to due 
an easily-fixable limitation in how topstack is derived:

If the more complete algo employed in the FixedTopStack function 
provided in comment #1 there were implemented in the engine's stack 
topstack referencing, so many workflow limitations unique to LiveCode 
would go away....
