We can clean up the property handling stuff without reimplementing
the property list as a hash table. I'm in favor of cleaning up the
property list handling, but not in favor of reimplementing the

I've yet to see any evidence of this. What's the big deal about wxMaxima
properties anyway? The property list has, for decades, been the
dumping ground for all kinds of random stuff.
In case it is not clear, wxMaxima properties are not in Maxima src.
They're appended by wxMaxima at run time. I don't think banning
PUTPROP at run time is going to work.
