Agreed but Sven says something about published fields though. The property just acts as simple alias so I don’t understand what the problem could be either. I’ll put this on my to-do list to fix in the compiler if it’s permitted.

I just wanted to add some R,G,B fields to a vector instead of adding them into the vector itself. Minor code hygiene thing that would be nice to accommodate but all the accessors required now makes this not so appealing.
