if you use the VelocityViewServlet (part of VelocityTools), you could
set some data (no arrays/lists yet, sorry) in the toolbox.xml as
<data> elements.  or you could use a servlet filter to put the values
in the servletContext attributes upon first request.  then they'll be
automatically available to all templates and subsequent requests.
