In your script, it appears that a custom prop is dynamically declared  
just by setting it's value?  Is this all you have to do?  In  
SuperCard, one has to specifically declare a "user" property with a  
"define" statement before ever setting it's value.  Otherwise it  
doesn't know if you are declaring a var or a prop... how does Rev do  
this (oh, maybe it is the use of "set")?
