Hehe, ok, explaining AOP in a few paragraphs is kinda hard... Please let me
be lazy here and point you to a Wikipedia article:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspect-oriented_programming

In short, AOP helps you inject cross-cutting concerns into your code base.
By injecting these concerns at compile-time, its even possible
to automatically implement interfaces or support partial classes.

We already tried implementing a runtime version of this using
as3commons-bytecode and as3commons-aop, but supporting this stuff @
compile-time
will make it a lot more powerful.

cheers,

Roland
