I was under the impression that you could only access methods as if they were fields using the @property attribute. After carefully reading the documentation I see this is not the case (UFCS does this). Still there are some added benefits from using @property to completely threat them as fields. It would be nice if you could add @property to the generated getters/setters.
Right, any no-arg function can be called without parentheses, and single-arg functions can be called as 'func = foo'. At this point, I don't think think @property is ever going to be fixed to work as originally intended (and digging through the newsgroups will turn up several discussions on why, if you're interested). I don't bother with it anymore myself. DUB used to compile with it enabled by default, but no longer.
