There is no module or namespace keyword in python. One module consists at least one file.
But sometimes I'm too lazy to create multiple files, or I simply cannot, e.g. when writing a plugin for something.
I write staticmethod as a replacement of module function in these cases.

Regardless of its utility or lack thereof for methods, staticmethod
seems to me to be the best way to make an attribute of a class that
happens to be a function (or, theoretically, some other other descriptor
object). I like to think of it as an "implicit-magic remover".

Probably if it didn't exist something like it would have been proposed
eventually, under some other name like @funcattr or something.
