I was obviously generalized a bit too much. If you really want me to,
I can search the mailing list archive to find out who said what.
Anyway, it was told many times before that inspecting a property with
Getter and Setter methods may change underlying data - so the whole
debugging of Properties are frowned upon.

I'm simply stating that developers should know what they are doing,
and that I have never seen a Delphi developer ever complain about that
"possible data change" issue. It's only FPC developers that keep
mentioning it.
