Curious if class stored properties have ever been discussed (doesn't seem

Also, assuming no, and assuming there's a good reason no/they're not coming
anytime soon, what are some patterns people have been using in their place?
I was considering something like..

class SomeClass {
    private static var _classValues = [SomeClass.Type: Int]()

    class var value: Int {
        get { _classValues[self] }
        set { _classValues[self] = newValue }

.. but then I remembered types aren't hashable yet either (so I guess I
need to stringify it first).
