int main(string[] argv)

	int b = a;

	return 0;

Just build with -property. -- - Alex

It predates property. Previously, there was no property, and pretty much any function which would qualify as a property function colud be called with or without parens. Eventually, only functions which are marked property will be able to be called without parens, and all functions with property will _have_ to be called without parens. But that's being phased in rather than being changed immediately and breaking a lot of existing code (it also gives the compiler the chance to get its property enforcement bugs ironed out). For now, if you compile with -property, that will enable strict property enforcement. Later, it will always be enforced, but not yet. - Jonathan M Davis

Sounds good. Not always funny having to support backwards
