Just as a remark, if you use the new abc frontend (abc-ja, see the the
discussion in other messages to this list), you can now process AJHotDraw
without modifying it by giving the "-debug lazyAdviceGeneration" flag on the
command-line. This will avoid generating advice associated with pointcuts
that are statically known to be false, thus avoiding the error messages.
