This implementation looks great, and solves programming problems that I've
wanted solutions for for years... but I have a question. Having the
control and modularity is only half the story, the flip side is getting
different views onto the code. This means being able to see code with or
without any given combination of aspects applied to it; sometimes you just
need to be explicit. Don't get me wrong, the linkage tools you've
developed are excellent, but one of my main frustrations with OO is the
way you jump from class to class, both side-ways and up and down class
hierarchies, following the program flow. Aspects provide a great way of
factoring out stuff, but when that stuff is included in what you're
currently interested in, it would be nice to have it there in front of you
explicitly, instead of having to follow what are effectively call links,
backwards and forwards. The current visualisation tool would be a great
way to control which aspects you see factored in and which remain factored
out. Note I'm only talking about *views* onto the code here, I'm not
talking about the main edit window - though it would be cool to be able to
have colour coded in-place advice, which you could edit at any joinpoint
and is automatically updated in the aspect.


PS I hope this post isn't too "noisy", but I didn't want to put a feature
request in if this had already been discussed - couldn't see it in the FAQ.
