So it returns a string if you pass in the property name but a random 
live object if you don't?

I don't see why we'd want to do that, honestly.

Also, in terms of argument order, I would think that the type of style 
would be specified more often than a pseudo-element, but maybe I'm wrong...

Past that, the proposal seems ok to me, I think.
