Saving arrays and custom property sets

I've used this feature a little bit, for a 'thing' that saves and retrieves
multiple fields at a time locally for re-insertion later in another record.
The multi dimensional arrays can be stored to/from a custom property set,
but accessing any multidimensional custom property beyond the first level
(propertyset-->property-->) is not allowed at this time. But working with
this even in this form is totally usable.
Use the standard syntax to set a custom property set to an array and back.
I'm assuming the rev team will enable multi-dimensional prop storage soon,
as it's already used for gradients, and of course the above mentioned
storage of arrays. One problem holding things up might be that a new custom
property editor needs to be built for this.
