Hmm. When I went to Gregor's one-day workshop at MIT last fall, I am 
pretty sure that the line he
took was that object-oriented programming is just great as far as it 
goes, but that there are further
issues of program/system modularity that are beyond its reach, and 
aspect-oriented programming
exists to deal with some of those additional problems. That sounded (and 
still sounds) right to me.
