Merging the branch now will give it more visibility and avoid merge conflicts.  The next official release created from the trunk (which will be called 4.02) will probably happen in about one year, which gives ample time to polish the work and document it.

Currently, its AST and parsers support attributes only on some syntactic categories.  This needs to be cleaned up and finished.  I hope some people will be able to contribute!  (Hongbo?)

Great news!  I'll do some garbage collection on the OPAM switches then -- we no longer need the 4.01.0dev+extension_points switch, so I'll remove that in favour of the vanilla 4.02.0dev trunk unless you have any objections.
