One alternative is a sequence of lines.  This limits the data.  You 
can't queue multiline text without some modification.  Also, numbers go 
through numberFormat and some info may be lost.  You can't queue arrays 
this way.

Arrays handle multiline data and numbers, but (currently) not arrays.

(BTW, there is good news for boxes.  An upcoming version of Revolution 
with have some optimization for replacing substrings with 'put'.)
