> Consider a class or interface with a method marked as preview. Subclassing the class or implementing the interface by itself should not cause a preview error/warning (as that would be problematic for Loom), but overriding the method should produce a preview error/warning.
> This patch adds the error/warning in case a preview method is overridden.
