true. AOP is an overused buzzword, interceptors are a useful and proven 
technique ;)

well, actually, you can implement various joins using interceptors (I 
think the only thing you can't do using java proxies and interceptors is 
caller-side aspecting or property aspecting), and people have.

If you look inside an "AOP toolkit", you'll see its often just a way to 
manage the creation of interceptor chains. I think Nanning and 
AspectWerkz even have an Interceptor class :-D
