The ReferenceListProperty class only modifies the linked properties if an entire tuple is assigned to the property. The simplest example is trying to assign:

widget.x = 100 # works
widget.pos[0] = 123
print(widget.x) # prints '100', expected 123
#although this works:
widget.pos = (123, widget.y)
print(widget.x) # prints '123' as expected

If this was intentional behaviour, the program should crash or otherwise alert the developer in some way, right now the assignment is to a copy of the element and just disappears without any notice.

I spoke with @tshirtman on IRC about this, he agreed that it would be desirable if the ReferenceListProperty props allow changing their elements without assigning the whole thing.
