You only allow read access to a field, and you think it's strange the 
compiler doesn't allow writing ? :-).

Furthermore, using properties as reference (which includes writing to a 
field of it) is not allowed anymore. Either export a pointer, make the 
field itself public (and remove the property), or write the complete record.
