Sevral problems...

One of them is I often need to code with wizard perms, and I don't follow my
own verbing-properties rules.
Even worse, all my other wizards work the same way.

Another problem is that I want the :_* verb to really behave like a
property...  When it's -r, it returns E_PERM...  Just like a property, so I
want the verb to to behave as the property perms reflect.

The last problem is +c and -c.  The C bit affects the behavior of /setting/
a property, and I have no program for setting properties, so all C will do
is cause problems.
