Message Hi,

Just a very, very quick introduction: I'm Albert Peschar from Holland,
or the Netherlands if you prefer. I'm eager to start working on
Propel :)

I'll be implementing magic getters and setters and the ArrayAccess
interface. This will allow:

  $book->author = 'John Davis';
  $book->description = 'Great bloody book...';

and:

  $book['author'] = '...';
  $book['description'] = '...';

Both features will be optional and enabled in build.properties. Not only
will this make using Propel objects more convenient, it will also enable
"plug and play" usage in certain template engines and other libraries
that support arrays or simple objects.

When I'm done with that, I'll look into implementing a plug-in system รก
la symfony mix-ins. It's a shame that the symfony guys didn't improve
the propel codebase instead of forking it.

Cheers,
Albert
