    According to Apple's article about KVC http://developer.apple.com/document.../KeyValueCoding/Concepts/BasicPrinciples.html paths for valueForKey can be compound. I mean consist from several property names separated by dot.
    So if I want to get value of property of an object inside of one of it's accessors, than I can use
    [self.someproperty valueForKey:@"somevalue"];
    [self valueForKey:@"someproperty.somevalue"];
    But second does not work! It says "this class is not key value coding-compliant for the key". So what is the problem with compound key path?
