AspectJ launches campaign for world peace ;)

I hope by now you've seen the news that AspectJ and AspectWerkz are joining forces to collaborate on the development of Aspectj 5. In addition to the details on the AspectJ website, there's an interview at TheServerSide by Dion Almaer with quotes from Gregor Kiczales, myself, Alexandre Vasseur and Jonas Boner.

One of my favourite things that comes out in reading the posts on that TSS thread, is just how unusual it is for open source projects to decide to work together (as opposed to project splits and wars). As some posters have suggested, perhaps this could be the start of a new open source peace movement ;). What are your favourite suggestions for OSS mergers??

BTW, if you're looking for some of the meat behind the announcement, check out the updated AspectJ 5 Developer's Notebook. I've uploaded two new chapters covering the load-time weaving enhancements and the annotation-based development style.
