cfproperty now creates getters and setters no matter what. That's different, but OK. I made a cfc with only this:
<cfcomponent><cfproperty name="name"></cfcomponent>

When I call the methods, I get strange results:

<cfdump var="#ob.getName()#"> UNEXPECTED - returns a struct, {var=""}
<cfdump var="#ob.setName("XYZ")#"> UNEXPECTED - returns a struct, {var=""}
<cfdump var="#ob.getName()#"> EXPECTED - returns "XYZ"

The first getter should probably return an empty string. Better if it returned the default for the type, so if the cfproperty type="numeric" it should return 0, if cfproperty type="struct", it should return an empty struct instead of a struct with the key "VAR" and an empty string as a value - this one, if not fixed, will hurt eventually.

The setter should probably either return void, return the value set, or the object, effectively, <cfreturn this />. I prefer returning the object.

	<cfproperty name="Name" type="struct" />

<cfdump var="#ob.getName()#">
<cfdump var="#ob.setName({a="abz"})#">
<cfdump var="#ob.getName()#">
