In some cases, what you actually want ARE metaclasses. I wouldn't say
get rid of them, because I use them in cases where what I actually want
ARE metaclasses, but I do concede that many of the (ab)uses of
metaclasses could be replaced by decorators (assuming that the
decorator syntax applied to classes as well).
