When will the op= be implemented on a get/set property, e.g array.length+=1;
Is there some technical difficulty?

It's difficult because the compiler would have to be able to match up the getters and setters for a given property, which, given D's rather "interesting" method of declaring properties and also because of possible implicit conversions, it might be a very difficult thing to do.
