Can't assignment to a function be fixed though? Are there any 
cases where fixing that will cause problems for @property free 
functions because they all must take more that one parameter i 

It's quite a big wart so we don't have to fix all of @property at 
least, but that should be fixed if fixing it does not crap on 
UFCS and @property free functions.
