Except when they are attributes — when applied to member 

It makes no sense that `const int` variable is a constant integer 
while `const int function()` is a constant member function of 
some struct or class that returns non-constant integer. We should 
introduce `@const` (and others) as a proper function attribute 
and deprecate the ambiguous `const int function()` syntax.
