I've finally had a chance to look up the X{Get,Set}TextProperty
functions, but I don't understand how they're any improvement on plain
GetProperty and ChangeProperty. I assume you've been working with code
that uses them; can you explain how they help?

I don't think I like any of the functions that convert between
TextList/StringList and TextProperty representations, and the wc and mb
variants of those look especially ugly to me.
