The field it refers to is readable in any case. The question is  
whether they should also be able to use something like "print  
write_only_property". Moreover, once support for calling getters/ 
setters is implemented, for consistency purposes a write-only property  
with a setter should then also be printable. However, there is not way  
to do that, since you cannot do "print property_setter" (since a  
setter does not return any value).

But maybe it's easier to ask the usual question: wddd? (what does  
Delphi do)
