So you want a recursive setProp handler :)

I have not tested this in a while (and there are a few little thins  
that don't work quite as expected with these - they do not return  
arrays for instance) - but I would try to avoid putting too much code  
in the setprop / getprop handlers and use them to call functions ( a  
recursive function in your case).
