I'm not sure how to take your post. In particular, I don't see the
implementation as the limiting factor in decorator design. We can
probably implement any design that we want to. The question is
actually about the preferred design. You seem to be suggesting a
design where decorate() is used as a pseudo-keyword; assuming, for
example, that you'd want it to work for functions as well as methods.
I suspect it's futile to propose alternate designs at this point.
