Hello Eric,

advice for the execution of advice is problematic if the advice depends 
on the builtin JoinPoint type. In this case advice code is transformed 
into a template member function of the aspect, which is transformed into 
a class. This brings us back to the problem of weaving in template.

If the advice does not depend on JoinPoint an adviceexecution pointcut 
function would be fairly easy to implement. However, it could also be 
simulated be moving the advice body into a member function of the 
aspect, for which it is possible to be advised.
