if you
   set the someVariable of somthing

if there is a variable someVariable, it gets evaluated.  You can't quote
it, either.

I have some loops to the effect of

  repeat for each word prop in "prop1 prop2"
     set the prop of stack myStack to value(prop)
  end repeat

Personally, I think it a bug that you can't simply quote a string to
prevent it being evaluated as a variable, but. . .
