I know what you mean - sometimes feels a little awkward and potentially
error-prone to have a property name and a class name differing only in the
capitalization of the first letter (and the range of the property being the
class). Maybe some sort of other naming convention would help - a la:


I usually just end up adorning the property name with some additional info -
i.e. processingScript points to an object of type Script.
