This would indeed be nice, but wraps back to needing to use a global 
array. In a sense, this is an extension of my overall issues with 
arrays in Rev. I'd like to be able to pass arrays by reference, and I'd 
like for them to be more like actual "lists" rather than the sort of 
pseudo-arrays we have now.

While modern systems may have memory to spare, the current usage of 
arrays is simply an inefficient memory hog except for the most 
lightweight of uses.
