I don't think it's "grossly overlooked".  In Java, verbosity is so bad
that a lot of tooling has sprung up around helping with this kind of
thing.  I guess every Java "IDE" allows you to add a member to a class
and then auto-create getter and setter for it.  And Eclipse at least has
this template for a for loop that does just what I suggested.

I think it's a matter of the amount of verbosity.  In Java, it never
bothered me to write a for loop, so I didn't use IDE support for that.
But I've used IDE support more than once for getters and setters :-(

I wonder how the Ada community approaches this aspect.
