Just to inject a little insanity into the debate... we've touched on
the idea of obtaining information in unorthodox ways before (parameter
names come to mind). Now, this proceeds from the assumption that a
given Java compiler would assemble bytecode such that visible
annotations would stay in the order in which they were defined, but
given that that is true for one or more available compilers, what is
the feeling of the community toward specifying that order be derived
from bytecode inspection? I realize this is quite specific, but in
the end nothing is more intuitive than just using the annotations in
the order in which they are actually specified.
An alternative is to use annotation processors to capture source time information via some
kind of annotations but
both approaches sound very scary.
Matt do you think it's really worth exploring?
