Neither handles old or new syntax, both simply serve different  
purposes. The version in pdecl is only for property declarations  
outside the context of classes/objects. The version in pdecobj is only  
for properties declared inside classes/objects. Both use the same core  
functionality (pdecvar.read_property_dec) to actually parse the  
property declaration.

It's fine to rename them.
