Handlers begin with "on" (e.g., "on mouseUp"). GetProp is used very
differently: "getProp myProperty".
I don't know that there is a specific word for that.
Generically it is a construct, but what isn't? Attempting to describe it as
a handler stretches the rules a bit, but perhaps not inappropriately.
What would you call it?
