I would like to second yudJ concern here.

I'm not in a hurry to see perl-like stuff neither.

If there are to be synyax changed, I would rather like see = bar;
to implicitely call set_property_value(obj, "foo", bar), so a wrappers
assignement on property assignement. (and of course bar =; would do
an implicit call to property_value(obj, "foo")...
Same could be true for verbs call... obj:(verb)(@args) same as
call_verb(obj, verb, args)... Also the possibilities to make a wrapper for
bf likes pass() would be nice (if such wrapper was possible, implementing
passable/unpassable verbs would be trivial, while right now it's not easy
to do in-db.)
