Funny, the whole reason I'm using arrays to store custom properties is to
avoid relying on delimiter characters  :-)  I'm storing image data which has
all kinds of crazy characters and don't want to risk corrupting the images.

I was hoping there was some special combine/split/union (collapse!) command
that would do what I needed, but rebuilding the array is working fine so
far.  Thanks to all who responded.

And Mike Admin, yes, you understood what I was asking for.
