Ok, one more work on properties:

While invoking methods in generic classes was always clearly excluded from the
generics feature set, invoking properties was considered experimental.

Unfortunately, invoking properties is currently broken - as I said, support was
there, but not officially supported, so it wasn't part of the test suite - and
it's too late to do anything about it, this won't make it into the 1.0 release.

We may talk about properties after the 1.0 release - that's a bug which can be
fixed, but it requires adding hacks to the runtime which is a no-go at the

Methods are post generics sharing, so in the > 3 months from now timeframe.
