Well, in C# it’s possible, sure, but it’s considered bad practice (see for example https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms182165.aspx <https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms182165.aspx>), and I wouldn’t want it for Swift. Being a property implies it’s “variable-like” at least to some extent.
