Doesn't a non-null prop->pointer tell you this?

And inverting the flag is unnecessarily risky IMHO. An all-zero prop
might now result in dereferencing a NULL prop->pointer instead of using
the empty prop->value. Now I haven't looked at the code to see if this
is a real problem. But I believe it's better not having to do that
