Subject Re: AOP Pointcuts

Two thoughts:
1) Doesn't spring security already do some of this?  :-)

2) It really shouldn't affect operation of the databindings at all.   By the 
time you would get to the aop points, the execution of the databindings will 
have long been complete.   The objects would be there already.
