Attribute soup
1. inconsistent - some with leading '@' & some without
all attributes should start with @. This will help to reduce 
number of key/reserved words

2. need re-declare attributes for aggregated types (struct/class) 
even if it is already declared on module level

3. All attributes should be non-negative word and introduce 
Ex:  @gc:
@nogc become @!gc

Simple example
module x;

@!gc @!throw:

void funcionDoNotThrow() {}

// Reverse the above module attribute setting
void functionThrow() @throw {}
