how to create a list in easyJSON

This code:

   put "12345" into tArray["one"][1]
   put "12345" into tArray["one"][2]
   put "12345" into tArray["one"][3]
   put "12345" into tArray["two"][1]
   put "12345" into tArray["two"][2]
   put jsonfromarray(tArray) into tWhatever

gives me this result:

{"one":{"3":12345,"1":12345,"2":12345},"two":{"1":12345,"2":12345}}

which is a multi-level array, rather than this, which is a single-level
array with lists

{"one":["12345","12345","12345"],"two":["12345","12345"]}

I'm not even sure how to distinguish between the two in Livecode. We parse
strings into lists so often that I'm not aware of a pure list data
structure. Livecode can interpret "12345,12345,12345" as a list if I tell
it to go by item, but it's just a string and that's how easyJSON is
treating it, as one string, not a list of strings.
