This is an area that is awkward in live code.

The use of unquoted literals for this is inconsistent with most of live
code (but quoting would be inconsistent with the built in properties, so .
. .)

I have "loops" like

repeat for each word someProp in "theOnlyPropInTheList"

set the someProp of someControl to myVal

end repeat

If you have a variable whose name is the same as the property, there does
does not seem to be a good solution.
