I wish there were a property feature available almost very time I encounter
a "get*" method in the stdlib (or any where):
There are a heck of a lot in the os module:
In : [s for s in dir(os) if s.startswith('get')]
Many of those may be good use-cases for getters, but still...
And just yesterday I was getting annoyed by some in sysconfig:
In : [s for s in dir(sysconfig) if s.startswith('get')]

properties are a good idea for classes, then they are a good idea for
