* This transformation finds all the methods defined in a script that have
* the @WithLogging annotation on them, and then weaves in a start and stop 
* message that is logged using println.

public class LoggingASTTransformation implements ASTTransformation {

    public void visit(ASTNode[] nodes, SourceUnit sourceUnit) {
        List methods = sourceUnit.getAST()?.getMethods()
        // find all methods annotated with @WithLogging

            existingStatements.add(0, startMessage)
