Well, for the record, I don't believe "property" is the problem. It's
that each "property" is stored and accessed via "properties" and
that's where the collision is.

That's true. If this was for Nitro, we probably wouldn't be having
this discussion. I think Og is supposed to be a general library and
that's the only reason renaming is being entertained. I don't know
that for sure though.
