Subject: Better late than...
One really useful thing that allowing foo.bar="burfle" to implicitly call
set_property_value(foo, "bar", "burfle") and foo.bar to implicitly call
get_property_value(foo, "bar") (and thus to allow for wrappers) would be
the ability to easily implement 'inflatable' objects, i.e. objects whose
data is stored out of the MOO database somewhere until it is actually
<SOME OTHER STUFF HERE...>
I have to agree with him... This just let the MOO
be more Object Oriented let us override some
operator... More of that, this let us add some security
check (or anything else) on a propriety without having
it to be -c... But keep in mind to leave it simple.
