public interface MetadataAwareAspectInstanceFactory
extends AspectInstanceFactory

Subinterface of AspectInstanceFactory that returns AspectMetadata associated with AspectJ-annotated classes.

Ideally, AspectInstanceFactory would include this method itself, but because AspectMetadata uses Java-5-only AjType, we need to split out this subinterface.
