Base class for properties to attach to vertices or particles as arrays of data.

These properties are virtual classes so that one can store a list of them in a triangle mesh, or a particle cluster, or a glyph array. They are particularly useful for storing data that later must be used in postprocessing, for example a scalar property could be the temperature of particles to be rendered as falsecolor.
