It's not difficult to add support for sending an error from setter or a
getter, the same way that it's done for a normal method. It's not via C++
exceptions, but with a call to QDBusContext::sendError().
But from the client side, there's no way to determine if a setting failed
(QObject::setProperty returns void) or the reason why a get failed. If an
API required checking those, the client would have to call the Get and
Set methods directly.
