I'm quite calm, thank you :-) And thank you doubly for the link. Hadn't googled up much of anything concerning this myself (other than that multitude of existing workarounds) but Chet's reply is exactly the thing that I wanted -- to see if there is an interest in discussing the merits of implementing them, while presenting a use-case that, I feel, naturally belongs to the realm of scripts yet would improve nicely from having them.

I am not familiar with the bash source, and if they are actually hard and/or messy to implement, the answer might very well still be simply "no", and I'll just continue to use the accessor-function approach that I'm using now -- but if it's just a matter of missing use-cases, I thought that me mentioning this one could be welcome while I was writing this script.
