Fair point Alex, AOP probably would better be a language feature rather
than a framework feature. Though we might see something sooner if we
implement it as a framework feature.

Having said that if enough f the micro-architecture frameworks implement a
byte code manipulation approach perhaps that is sufficient. That poses an
interesting question in terms of what flex is and what it becomes. Is it a
UI framework, boiler plate, micro-architecture, all of the above?

Do we need to establish what the high level goals of the framework are?
