I wish there was another way, but I can't seem to find one, so I just
went ahead with the target solution. What irks me about it though is
1) it's not compatible with Matz version, 2) one starts to expect
target to offer more meta-information, like method name, arity,
__LINE__, binding, etc. and 3) then you think before and after advice
should passed the target object too. That's why I say it makes more
sense for a full-blown AOP deal, but not so much for a light-weight
advice solution. Well, Maybe I'll give in and just supply a full-blown
taget to all of them. In the mean time here the solution as it
currently stands (I'll attach it my next post).
