Unfortunately, it seems that behavior controls are the exception to
this. Placing the getprop handler in a behavior button does not
implement inherited custom properties, while placing them in the stack
script does.

...and note that you probably don't want to inherit the setprop
handler: changing the value of the custom property in a child object
would change the value for all objects that inherit that property.
