 * <p>
 * When used in tandem with {@link FactoryModuleBuilder}, constructors annotated with 
 * {@code @AssistedInject} indicate that multiple constructors can be injected, each with different
 * parameters. AssistedInject annotations should not be mixed with {@literal @}{@link Inject}
 * annotations. The assisted parameters must exactly match one corresponding factory method within
 * the factory interface, but the parameters do not need to be in the same order. Constructors
 * annotated with AssistedInject <b>are created by Guice and receive all the benefits
 * (such as AOP).
 * <p>
 * <strong>Obsolete Usage: When used in tandem with {@link FactoryProvider}, constructors
 * annotated with {@code @AssistedInject} trigger a "backwards compatibility mode". The assisted
 * parameters must exactly match one corresponding factory method within the factory interface and
 * all must be in the same order as listed in the factory. In this backwards compatable mode,
 * constructors annotated with AssistedInject <b>are not created by Guice and thus receive
 * none of the benefits.
 * <p>
 * Constructor parameters must be either supplied by the factory interface and marked with
 * <code>@Assisted, or they must be injectable.
