Just as a side note: There is another very well-defined way in abc to
control which pointcuts can match to which joinpoints. In particular
you should have a look at the Open Modules extension ( and in
there at how ResidueConjuncts are generated.

If you want control on an even more fine grained level you can also
walk through all AdviceApplications (accessible from
GlobalAspectInfo), inspect each single one and set its residue to
NeverMatch.v() if you don't want it to be woven. This may however
require using a ReweavingAnalysis.

Hope that helps,
