Yes, or, quite often I want to write a trivial getter but a nontrivial setter.
So I'd like just the getter for free. Also, when the interface is going to be
exported, even a trivial property should often be a property instead of a
field, to avoid breaking binary compatibility if one changes one's mind and
wants to make it a property later (actually this even affects source
compatibility--a property can't be passed by reference).
