 I suppose if we redo this functionality in a more general way, we can
continue to support object properties as long as we keep the python
interface the same. So we could do away with game object properties, or we
could keep it and offer general properties as an additional feature? What do
you think?

 For what I've gathered thus far, viewing and editing of generic properties
that are categorized will eliminate the need for scripts to draw buttons and
panels directly. So the only thing that's left for UI is python access to
menus? Would everyone agree with that?
