Allow variable use in arrays

WTX does not support the use of a variable in an array. So this request is to add this feature in future WTX/ITX releases.
That is, a variable can not be used in an indexed field.
For example, you can not use Name[INDEX($)] or Name[x], where x being a variable.
Only a defined numeric value is allowed for referring the ranged fields i.e Name[1], Name[2].

This feature will be beneficial for the whole WTX community as this would save a lot of time and efforts for the developers.

    ITX already has this as a function.  The implementation is via the CHOOSE function which returns the object in a series (array) whose position in the series corresponds to a specific number as a single integer expression.  Does this meet your particular need?
