I still don't understand what would happen with __annotations__. If
the decorator returns a non-function, one would expect the annotations
to be in the __annotations__ attribute of the enclosing class or
module. If it returns a function, they would be in the __annotations__
attribute of the function. And I'm talking about the runtime behavior
in Python as explained in PEP484 and PEP526. I would expect these
declarations to behave according to the same principles as other ways
to annotate variables/functions. If there is no runtime behavior, a
comment-based syntax might be more appropriate. Or have I missed
