I'm not sure it should effect subclasses.

However aspects.rb isn't true AOP. I've haven't studied it enough to
understand exactly how it works. (George is the author). But basically
it's seems to be more a sophisticated method wrapping system. I've
wondered on occasion how possible it would be to rewrite aspects.rb on
top of cuts.rb.
