Agreed, I missed this one. It's not too bad with classes if you can
warp your mind to think of "to class" as a verb like "to define".

One minor nit, why use the brackets at all?
as sychronized, sharkfin(size=10) def VWBug(...):
that looks better to me than:
as [sychronized, sharkfin(size=10)] def VWBug(...):
without brackets it looks more to me like Python, you'd never see:
from foo import [bar, baz]
For longer lists of decorators use the familiar tuple rule, wrap in
deprecated) def VWBug(...):
