The accessor is a function, so it should at least follow the same naming
convention as used by other functions (e.g. use a "uikit-" or "uikit--"
prefix depending on whether you want to announce it as private or not).

After that, I don't think there are many more conventions to follow
because it's not used very often, so it seems nobody's come up with
a clear convention yet.  I guess you could follow the
"<typename>-<fieldname>" convention used in cl-defstruct.
