One problem that I see with pragmas is that a compile method cannot
be annotated without recompiling it. Which would be quite hampering
Having setProperty:toValue: / valueOfProperty: would make things
simpler. The compiler would not have to be modified.
On some point, instead of manipulating pragmas, such might be useful:
Object>>forCurrentMethodSetProperty: name toValue: val
thisContext method setProperty: name toValue: val
