It was just a joke. :) I was just trying to imagine what certain
denizens of the mailing list would have had to say about that
suggestion. ;)

Seriously though, in the context of this thread, you'd still have the
original problem of how do you access them with a name that's not
properties. Besides, if we go that route, I'd prefer we just annotate.

Hmm... That's a thought. Why not just store the properties as
annotations? The prop_* methods and property could just be interfaces
to the annotation system. I wonder if that would work...
