[TYPO3-50-general] Magic Get too magic?

Hi folks,

I just stumbled again over the magic Getter method I implemented in  
the TYPO3 class [1]. The only purpose is to save developers some  
typing. Instead of


they may write


However, I more and more tend to not like it. First thing is that  
there are now two ways for getting the property and secondly I ask my  
self if we should allow accessing properties directly (even through a  
magic Getter) at all.

Now, before I remove that magic from TYPO3 - what do you think about  
magic Getters and Setters?
