      Description

      While I really the use of prop and it's typesafeness, I still find myself frequently in need of more complicated expressions enough that I would be willing to pay the speed penalty of reflection in order to not have to define a public getter for it. In some situations, you can't actually make an equivilent getter. For instance, in integrations tests I've had more than one situation where I wanted to call a setter with a specific value from the template. With OGNL this is easy but with prop it's impossible. I would very much like to see prop remain the default binding but have OGNL available when it's needed. I think not having it would be a severe limitation of T5.
