And then there's the ever so easy to use:

  put pItem into item (the number of items in pVar) + 1 of pVar

which hardly anyone uses because it's such a pain to type. But I've 
started using it again lately because if you do it that way, you don't 
have to worry about leading, trailing, or any other kinds of delimiters. 
The engine handles it all and it just works.
