PHP __set() Magic Method Conundrum

I am completely baffled by this one and hope one of my techie friends can help.

I’m using a PHP class with magic methods to set and get the properties of that class.    The idea is to use private properties in the class so that the PHP magic methods can take over and determine whether to update a WordPress user meta entry, blog entry, or standard option based on which proper of the class is being retrieved or stored.
