Do you actually need to create the array from the external? Otherwise,
shouldn't SetArray() and GetArray() work? If not, you could always
resort to SendCardMessage() to do the dirty work...

The documentation for SetArray() says about the variable "If found the
value of the variable is cleared and then setup as an array."
