Sorry for the dumb question, which may also suggest, that I'm 
unfortunately unable to contribute at this level (with zero knowledge 
of C and only "working" one for Python):
Where can I find the sources for tests etc. and how they are eventually 
to be submitted? Is some other account needed besides the one for

Anyway, the long character properties now work in the latest version

In the mentioned overview
there is a statement for the property names: "You may omit the 
underscores or use hyphens or spaces instead." 
While I'm not sure, that it is a good thing to have that many 
variations, they should probably be handled in the same way.

Now, the whitespace (and also non ascii characters) in the property 
name seem to confuse the parser: these pass silently (don't match 
anything) and don't throw an exception like "undefined property name".
