Can a substack become the mainstack and the mainstack become its substack?

If your goal is GitHub, then you definitely want script-only stack
behaviors, and you should check out either Brian's ScriptTracker
<https://github.com/bwmilby/lc-misc/tree/master/ScriptTracker> or my
Navigator <https://gcanyon.wixsite.com/navigator> (nearly up-to-date
documentation specific to converting to script-only stack behaviors with
Navigator is here
<https://gcanyon.wordpress.com/navigator-convert-to-behaviors-details/>).
