When I use properties, I always declare them as "public methods". I
mean, like this :
def getter_foo(self): pass
def setter_foo(self, value): pass
foo = property(fget=getter_foo, fset=setter_foo)
Like this, it's possible to test them outside the class.
I got some problems testing properties the "normal" way, so, I ended up
using something like that.
(try testing a setter which raises an exception, using property
syntax, for instance ;) )
