The only way I can see to do it is with "do"; and maybe use merge to make it
a bit cleaner:

on mouseUp
  put "gaskin" into tPropSet
  put "richard" into tProp
  put "Howdy!" into tVal
  do merge("set the [[tPropSet]][ [[tProp]] ] of me to tVal")
end mouseUp

Note that you need to have a spaces around [[tProp]] otherwise you get an
error...
