function's source code, using ast to parse it, and then transforming the
AST.  I just looked at another project, pyautodiff, which does that.  And I
think numba does that for llvm code generation.  Wouldn't it be nicer to
just apply a decorator to a function than to write the function as a Python

Numba works from byte code, not the ast. There's no way to access the ast
reliably at runtime in python -- it gets thrown away during compilation.
