Interested in finishing my thought, and having to leave for a client and
unable to wait to see if there is any general interest in its thread
before I do so - its only empty bandwidth after all --
A petition I *did* sign was the one imploring Guido to reconsider his
choice of syntax for decorators. I signed it in opposition and dissent
to its contents (good that the petition provided for that). So that I
was supporting Guido's choice of syntax, and asking him to stick to his
guns - thinking that "@" isolated decorators appropriately as something
other than Python business-as-usual.
