Okay, good. That sounds like what I did.

I need to pass property "x" to a utility class. The utility class splits the property string
on a delimiter and adds each piece to a List object. The List object is then used by another
class. But since my data may already contain commas, the utility can't always parse the values
correctly.  So an alternative delimiter solves that issue for me.
