Manually setting streetWidth for setback()

I'm working with an imported shape file that has lots, and I'm trying to use setback() with it.  I've done some analysis and I've got a list of all the street facing edges for each lot, but there doesn't seem like a good way to feed that information back into the system (there doesn't seem to be a good way to set an array attribute like streetWidth).

Any thoughts on the right way to do this?  There doesn't seem to be a clear way to "manually" do the operation myself (not all the lots are quads, so comp(e) with variable length indices doesn't seem possible)
