So it sounds like people want decorator syntax for attributes.  Would
it be sufficient to check for inheritance from System.Attribute to
distinguish the two?  Also attributes being classes and decorators
functions might help.  I agree it is better to allow the decorator
syntax in more places than cpython than the alternative.
