TIL: Python's @property has a short-hand for setters!
class C(object):
    def __init__(self):
        self._x = None

    def x(self):
        """I'm the 'x' property."""
        return self._x

    def x(self, value):
        self._x = value

    def x(self):
        del self._x
I've used Python 2.5 for so long I've been unaware of features introduced in 2008. laughcry

My question: How do you use this with Python descriptors generated by a metaclass, like the properties in NDB model classes?
