A Tribute to Jim Hugunin

News of Jim Hugunin's move to join the Microsoft CLR team became public yesterday. Jim Hugunin led the AspectJ implementation team at PARC and played a huge role in making AspectJ the success that it is today. Jim is an extraordinary individual and it has been a pleasure working with him on the AspectJ project. He left behind very big shoes to fill when he stepped down as the AspectJ project lead and handed over to me. If I do half as well as Jim did in the role, I shall be very happy.

Thanks Jim for all of your contributions to AOP and to AspectJ - I hope we get to work together again some more at some point in the future.
