Yep, I'm just checking the corner case semantics.  Like I said::

    I don't mind at all if we just say "don't do that", but then
    @abstractmethod should probably be documented explicitly as only being
    usable within a class body.  (Note that this is different from
    @classmethod and @staticmethod which can be used after the fact.)

I just want to make sure it's intended and documented.

I'm not *in*-sane. Indeed, I am so far *out* of sane that you appear a
tiny blip on the distant coast of sanity.
