Someone (you?) suggested this earlier, on IRC. I explored but I could not
figure out how to use it -- I implemented something else.

TTN's suggestion of make-object-property appears to offer a simple
solution -- based on what I just now read in the guile manual.  Its not
obviously simpler than doing what I implemented .. maybe it is, the devil
is in the details (I have working code now, and have no desire to re-do it).

I just thought I'd bring this up since its been a recurring need for me,
and I figure others would have a similar need.
