By the way, Java6 contains an API to the Java AST:


At the moment, that's read-only access, but I wouldn't be surprised if
that restriction will be lifted at some point in future. And we all know
what this will mean: Java gets macros in disguise. :-)

Combined with invokedynamic, Java6 becomes an even more so interesting
platform. Perhaps interesting enough to throw out backwards
