I'll note that in the Python community we consider it an advantage of using
attributes/properties versus accessor and mutator methods. This distinction
between an attribute- versus method-centric object oriented programming
language has been discussed in many articles.
Note that we provide several other mechanisms to extend functionality; for
example, the event system. Overall Zope (like most other Python code) is
optimized to work with attributes/properties. We just like them too much! :-)
