While this would indeed work, I think, Matju's suggestion of a table
driven by a [f]X[+ 1] counter, maybe with [mod <tablesize>] in between
would be a better approach, for example because you can easily change
the store values on the fly - and of course it's more efficient. 

If you need to do this with symbols, the [m_symbolarray] from the rj
library can be used to index symbols by positions. If you have mixed
lists of numbers and symbols I'd probably indeed use [list-dripslow],
or maybe just this: 

 [list append 1 2 3 a b c]
 | [0\ <- change with a counter, then bang the [list]
 | |
 | [set, adddollar $1(
