I am not sure what you mean when you say you want to preprocess the 
properties before reading them.  There are 2 possible cases (that I can 
think of) in which preprocessing could occur:

1) in response to a user request, you access the stored data, process the 
data, then display the data.  However, you are still 'reading' the data 
before you can process it.

2) you need to process stored data as a result of some external or timed 
event (ie. not in response to a user request).  In this case you use 
cron/wget/stepper/etc. to activate a routine which accesses the stored data, 
processes the data, saves the data (either overwriting the old data or 
creating a new data element).  However, you are still 'reading' the data 
before you can process it.

Before you can process data you need to 'read' (access) the data.  If you 
mean something different when you say 'read' let us know, it may eliminate 
some confusion!
