That much was obvious enough :). What I meant was: Why are the
decorators an exprlist and not a testlist? The base classes are a test
list and the elements of a list-literal that (listmaker in Grammar) are
effectively a testlist too, so it's not obvious why the decorators
should not also be a testlist.
