Just pushed the updated code that manually creates the consistent long IDs. Not sure what to call them - they are still pretty much a long ID, in the same form as the long ID that is used for behaviors but derived differently.
Bulk of the code for the stack is here: https://github.com/bwmilby/lc-misc/blob/master/ScriptTracker/ScriptTracker_Scripts/stack_ScriptTracker_button_id_1003.livecodescript I've also added an option to perform a sync when saving the stack using a front script that intercepts the SaveStackRequest.
