On top of that having all attributes with @ syntax would allow 
for them to be defined as simple UDAs in runtime, make them 
available for introspection in templated code and allowing to 
getting rid of functionAtrributes traits. Moreover this would 
allow easy extension of those attributes with additional data, be 
it template arguments or struct fields.
