6) Should array properties be accessible as public attributes
instead of through accessor methods?
We don't currently allow public array attributes to make
the Python code simpler and faster (otherwise we will
be forced to use __setattr__ and such). This results in
incompatibilty with previous code that uses such attributes.
I prefer the use of public attributes over accessor methods.
