You're using a setter but a public variable? That's about the worst
compromise, isn't it? Either go down the road of the public variable
or the setter/getter (and in your case I would definitely recommend
the latter). Also, __get/__set are fine, as long as you don't use them
for everything (i.e. 5 magic calls per request will do very, very
little to your app, whereas 1000 per request will have some
significance on a site with lots of users).
