aspect code of course affects the size of the generated executables. You 
should be able to observe a changed size of libACE.so.xxx. Use the 
'size' command. The size of test programs will only differ if there are 
join points with a location in header files, because the library is 
normally linked dynamically.

Your optimization aspect might even reduce the size but it is rather 
unlikely that the size will remain *exactly* the same.

Best regards,
