This is how the object inspector in the IDE does it:

command revInspectorSetProperty pObject, pPropName, pValue
    lock messages
    set the pPropName of pObject to pValue
    unlock messages
end revInspectorSetProperty

function revInspectorGetProperty pObject, pPropName
    lock messages
    get the pPropName of pObject
    unlock messages
    return it
end revInspectorGetProperty

So it should work if you concatenate the property name and pass that to 
a handler like the above.
