If you are making designs that would normally have a lot of getters
and setters, it suggests that they may have an insufficient level of
abstraction. Of course, that isn't neccessarily the case -- but it
does seem to be the rule in my code. I personally don't have a need
for this facility and I don't think I want a library that would
encourage that style.
