octave:1> @get
error: parse error:

  function handles may not refer to keywords

>>> @get

I found this problem when trying to run bode from the control packge with Octave 7, but the problem is present on the stable branch too.  Both @lti/tfdata.m and @tf/__get__.m use @get.

In some cases, "get" and "set" behave like keywords, but they are also plain old functions and we should be able to create handles to them.
