There are lots of ways to call timeit, but generally if you are calling
it with number=1 then your results may not be trustworthy. (That depends
on the function, of course.) There's a reason why timeit defaults to
number=1000000 rather than 1.

The problem with that as an API is that once you have decorated the
function to call timeit, how do you use it *without* calling timeit?
If you use functools.wraps, there will be a func_to_time.__wrapped__ but
I don't think that calling that directly is a good interface.

Can you explain what the timef decorator does? What arguments does it
take, how do we use it?
