I agree that using library-defined annotations would be a better 
approach than language changes. Currently things like tested use 
the form
@name("AddPeer") unittest { /* ... */ }
Which is nice, because then you can extend it as desired, such as
@parallel @name("AddPeer") unittest

The main issue is that at this point, practically every single 
person has defined:
struct Name {
     string val;
string name(string val) { return Name(val); }

Adding common attributes such as this to Phobos or druntime and 
potentially have the default unittest runner include them would 
be good.
