Re: [aspectj-users] On the subject of profiling

It should not grow over time - it is kind of a 'working set' of types
that need to be around.  The model will also be large but should not
grow.

If either of those do grow significantly on each build, it is a bug.

I wish my eclipse could stay up for a few days :)
