I saw this in the list. I like the notational simplicity, but it does
it allow run-time addressing of properties (i.e. scripting, setting
properties from config files) and accessing properties without knowing
the full type? The latter becomes important when you don't want to
include headers for everything or load additional classes through

I have also found some properties stuff in the sandbox, especially one
that nice handles property graphs, but none fulfilled the above

So maybe this is too specialized? I thought it would be a great way to
allow scriptable access to properties of classes that are not known at
compile time, and thereby allow easy runtime setup of a modular system.

Thanks for the replies though, some interesting thoughts.
