Re: [aspectj-dev] not recompiling on non-changes to aspect files?

I agree this would be sweet if possible. Though I am less concerned about whitespace and more about method bodies...

Is there any way to not recompile the world if a file
containing an aspect changes only in whitespace or comments?
Or only in the method bodies?

The cost of recompiling a file once you've parsed it in JDT
might be small enough, but recompiling the world for a
comment change in AJDT is a pain.

Of course, this could mean readjusting line references into the
aspect, including all the "from" references to declares, if/since
we copy rather than reference the source locations.  Is that
the bigger problem?  Sigh.
