yes yes I know case doesn't matter. I'm just wondering why set_verb_info
lets you do that and set_property_info doesn't. I might want to rename
me.fancyprop to me.FancyProp or something. course I could rename it to
another name first, but it really doesn't matter. I'm sure it's just a
matter of changing a 0 to a 1 in the equality() check to see if the names
are the same, true it's a minor issue but at least it's not a 'hey i just
changed my server to 1.8 but didn't read the changelog so why am i getting
all these errors' post...
