GUIKit: user defined properties?

I've just downloaded the new GUIKit and I'm trying to convert some palettes in 
my old programs into the new GUIKit windows.

Palette buttons have a data field which is useful when the buttons represent 
different numerical values.  Is there a way to capture this feature with GUIKit?
Is there a way to define a custom property for a widget?

I've tried using Script to define a constant function, i.e.

Widget["Button",{"text"->Script[buttonData[] ],Script[buttonData[]:="A"] } ],

but this prints "GUIKit`Private`Script31buttonData" in the button instead of "A".

The available documentation on the use of Script within Widget doesn't seem to 
be complete.  Any suggestions?
