You can do that, or you can set an entire propertyset to an array, with each
element in the array becoming a property in the specified propertyset:

  -- Create an array:
  put "hello world" into tMyArray[1]
  --
  -- Tell MC which propertyset to work with:
  set the propertyset of stack "storage" to "ArrayData"
  --
  -- Set all of the key-value pairs of the storage object to
  -- the key-value pairs of the array:
  set the properties of stack "storage" to tArrayData
