You can still get the same functionality using `for..in` (but skipping
properties from the prototype chain):

var arr = [];
arr[2] = "some text";
arr[5] = "some text";
arr[24] = "some text";

for (var i in arr) {
  if (arr.hasOwnProperty(i)) {
    // ...

A better way might actually be to enumerate with `for (;;)` or just
use an object (rather than an array). Both ways make "keys" easily
