Okay, scratch the comment about int, it’s not been accurate for quite a number of years.  Going back to staticmethod, my point still applies: Follow what the docs say.

staticmethod is a type in CPython probably due to the way descriptors work; contextlib.closing is a class for simplicity and efficiency; both of these examples are irrelevant internal details, they’re marked up as functions, so you should treat them as functions.
