It's pretty clear at this point that we are _not_ going to have strict property
enforcement and that we are _not_ going to require that non-property functions
be called with parens (which is what -property currently tries to enforce). So,
there is no point in keeping -property around. It's trying to enforce something
that we're definitely not going to do.

So, I propose that as the first stage toward getting rid of it, we make it a
no-op. That way, we can remove -property from Phobos and druntime and move
towards getting rid of it entirely.

So has this been universally approved? (The pre-approved tag comes to mind,
nudge  andrei/walter).

The consensus was definitely in favor of _not_ having strict property
enforcement, and I believe that both Walter and Andrei agreed with that, and
without strict property enforcement, -property is pointless and incorrect. So,
I would fully expect Walter or Andrei to pre-approve this if they saw it, but
AFAIK, they haven't read this enhancement request.
