`getFoo()` is discouraged by PEP 8.  You don't have the choice between
`.foo` and `.get_foo()` in Java because Java has no properties and people
are trained to write getters and setters for everything.  I like that
choice in Python because I can write shorter code that is not cluttered
with very simple getters and setters.
