       Helper functions used by several schema classes.

       Important Note: This package is located in the file as secondary package and it
       haven't a file for itself. Nevertheless, the use will be the same.


         Usage: *::Util->create_properties( row => $self,
                                            properties => { baz => 2, foo => 'bar' },
                                            options => { cv_name => autocreate => 0, ...},
                                            prop_relation_name => 'organismprops',

         Desc : Chado has a number of <thing>prop tables with a similar
                structure.  This utility function is used by a number of
                modules to create properties in these kinds of tables.

         Args : row => the DBIC row object to create properties for,
                prop_relation_name => the DBIC relation name for the
                                      properties table to operate on,
                                      e.g. 'featureprops',
                properties => hashref of { propname => value, ...},
                options => options hashref as:
                      autocreate => 0,
                         (optional) boolean, if passed, automatically create cv,
                         cvterm, and dbxref rows if one cannot be found for the
                         given featureprop name.  Default false.

                      cv_name => to use for the given featureprops.
                                 Defaults to 'feature_property',

                      db_name => to use for autocreated dbxrefs,
                                 default 'null',

                      allow_duplicate_values => default false.
                          If true, allow duplicate instances of the same cvterm
                          and value in the properties of the feature.  Duplicate
                          values will have different ranks.

                      dbxref_accession_prefix => optional, default
                      definitions => optional hashref of:
                          { cvterm_name => definition,
                       to load into the cvterm table when autocreating cvterms
         Ret  : hashref of { propname => new row object in property table }
