    I may be completely wrong on this but one target audience for this feature is probably people doing Win32 COM/OLE Automation from Perl.

    Under VB (which is often used for code samples in COM documentation) the lines between methods and properties are really blurred. So being able to call a method to get a property value and then assign to the method to update the property might be convenient.
