I merely suggested that you review the PEP and discussions, because the 
concerns you were trying to bring up have been rehashed on Python-Dev about 
six or seven times over the lifetime of the PEP, to the best of my 
recollection.  Also if I recall correctly, Guido weighed in on at least one 
or two of those threads pointing out that there was not going to be any 
practical restriction put on decorators, even if some uses might be 
considered a bit gauche.

I'm sorry if you took my suggestion as implying anything more than 
that.  However, such was not my intention.
