John, I think I agree with everything Greg said (not just the bits I quote
above), which rather dampens my enthusiasm for your properties-as-hash.

We might still consider having it as a "modest design improvement" in Greg's
words, given that you have done the work towards it, if others are happy with
it, which probably means you will have to leave out that extra properties
argument that Greg mentions even if you feel it will be necessary later. I
don't know ... see what others say.
