What is the correct syntax for creating dynamic arrays (new in POV 
3.7.1?) and adding new items to them?

http://wiki.povray.org/content/Reference:Array

The docs only show the old standard syntax as far as I can see.

    #declare Foo = array;
    #declare Foo[42] = 4711;

This will create a resizable array with an initial size of zero, and
then grow the array to have a size of 43 (elements 0 through 42).

It is important to note that

    #ifdef(Foo[4711])

will also grow the array (to a size of 4712).
