Thank you, I will try to ask him about his experiences from the time
he searched some path to achieve this goal.

Oh yeah, I can remember an example of usage of attributes for documenting,
where a comment is in attribute. Here it is interesting, how to prevent
of the managed C++ sources by referencing the location of the comment in
an attribute to be extracted from the compiled assembly.

However, I would like to have a solution without an extra element
in compiled assembly (OK, I could remove it using CodeDom, but...). I would
like a non-intrusive solution (for sources), with no extra preprocessing,
just like
it is for C#, or for managed C++ in MSVS 2005. Even if the solution you
mentioned is simplier.

Currently my ordinary job eats me time for playing with it but I will find
some... :-)
