Couldn't we provide a mechanism whereby the cell can be adjusted to 
point to the decorated class? (heck, the interpreter has access to both 
classes after execution of the class statement - it could probably 
arrange for this to happen automatically whenever the decorated and 
undecorated classes are different).
