Ville? We're certainly keeping 2.3 compatibility in trunk. I didn't write
that code, and right now I won't be able to look at it. I plan on cutting the
release tomorrow, so if you have a chance to fix these by then, great.
Otherwise I'll just delete all that code from this branch, and you can fix it
later in trunk/ to not require 2.4.
Decorators are just syntactic sugar, so for now the functionality can be
obtained in a 2.3-compatible manner.
To be clear: ipython trunk will remain, for the foreseeable future, 2.3
compatible. The chainsaw branch does require 2.4.
Thanks for catching this one, Prabhu.
