Oh, and yes I'm well aware of Spring's AOP support.  Commons Proxy is
written for folks who don't want to have to use Spring to get dynamic
proxies if they don't want to (or for Spring itself to use rather than
writing their own proxying logic).  Proxy is written for any framework
that needs dynamic proxying and they don't want to have to monkey with
all of the crazy logic necessary for wiring everything together.
