Shouldn't the compiler give a warning on cyclic properties as it is such
a clear error? Because the call can be found to have no side effects and
passes no changed params, it must be easy to deem infinite recursive and
to catch at compile-time. Note that Microsoft requires camel-cased
fields only to pass the CLS compliance - private fields can be named
either way you want, however protected or public fields should be
camel-case to support subclasses in other languages. I see that csc does
not warn on this.
