I must admit that while I still like decorators, I do like them as
much as in the past.
I also see an overuse of decorators in various libraries for things that could
be done more clearly without them ;-(
But this is tangential.
What I would really like to know is the future of PEP 362, i.e. having
a signature object that could be taken from an undecorated function
and added to the decorated function.
I do not recall people having anything against it, in principle,
and there is also an implementation in the sandbox, but
after three years nothing happened. I guess this is just not
a high priority for the core developers.
