Convert DataTable into POCO using attributes

Hello there.
A while ago, I had this issue, I have an older system which *still* works with the DataTable class, but still, I want to create my POCO (as we call it these days, the plain old CLR object) and work with it, LINQ it, etc, instead of the ugly DataTable object.
So I decided to do a method (that could be used as extension method on the DataTable class) that converted my DataTable to my POCO, on the fly.

The problem: mapping DataTable columns to POCO properties.
The solution: create a custom attribute class so I can define the correspondent column of the DataTable for each POCO property.

Here is the code:
