Use a global for an array.  Put something into it before the call.  Get 
it right afterward.

For the reference, uh, I'm not sure.

In my scripts, I send to affect an object or in a callback or similar 
message.

Most of the time that I want to pass a reference I use a library.  
Consider 'start using' and 'insert script'.
