There is no document.

To my knowledge:

- Attributes are supported in a branch already scheduled to be merged after 3.0.0 is out.

- The location and tvalue are in the branch for which the merge request was just posted.

- I think virtual method intercepts are not implemented or planned.
   I am not sure whether this needs many extra things in the compiler, it just
   requires the interface RTTI and a RTL helper class ?
