Custom attributes are an interesting direction that already came up on
this list, but there was no concrete proposal with syntax and
semantics.  Before you spend time implementing something extensive, I
would strongly recommend you to float the idea on swift-evolution, and
follow-up with a formal proposal if there is consensus.
