If you have that many properties, there's no need to extend the syntax, just
do something like:

def prop(**props):
    def wee(f):
        return f
    return wee

@prop(printable=True, other_prop="yo!")
def some_func():
    return "sup, %s" % some_func.other_prop

print some_func() # prints "sup, yo!"
