The "Property" statement that is longer, the existance of get/set/de1
methods, those didn't catch your eye? What if the user plopped in a
nice big "__metaclass__ = Property" line? Ugly or not, I find that it
has helped me organize (with indentation), not repeat myself, and not
have to clean up spare get/set/del methods. I personally prefer it to
x = property(...), a property decorator, and a bazillion times more than
any property-specific syntax.
