Object properties are kept in `scm_properties_whash'.  Properties are
not named; internally, they are just pairs, almost always (#f . ()).
They are identified by their uniqueness eq?-wise.  Only the returned
proc-with-setter has access to this pair, through its environment.

The only meaningful name is that which you assign to it.

If you want names, associate them with the proc-with-setters somehow.
Keep your own alist of names to values.  Whatever.

they're attractive in some way.
