There is syntax to define trait and properties
but is there an API?

  my $b = eval '$a but true'; # setting a true property
  # API to do it without an eval?

A trait setter probably does not make sense but for the
implementer because it should not be set at run time.

Incidentally, in a interactive environment it would be cool
to access the documentation of variables and functions using
properties. Say "doc" and "udoc" respectively for the full and
one line version.
