[TIP] testing class properties and internal methods

Just wondering what the thoughts were on this.....

I have never tested class properties since they are basically getter
and setter functions.  I also never test getter and setter functions

Also, I have not taken to writing unit tests for the "private",
internal methods not in the public interface for a class.  I do this
since they are called from the public interface methods.

What are people's thoughts on this?
