Pipelining and AOP are different beasts. Assuming we're programming 
to the mainline,  a pipeline /will/ return the value of its last 
element, but an AOP chain /should/ returns the value of its primary 
function. All interceptors before and after the primary are 
auxilaries. An AOP chain that doesn't return on its primary is going 
to be difficult to reason about - ie pointcuts shouldn't have 
side-effects affecting main code.
