I guess you're not much fond of decorators then; it's common to define
them exactly as 3-level deep nested functions:

def decofactory(deco_arg):
     def decorator(func):
        def wrapper(*args, **kwargs):
            if deco_arg:
               return func(*args, **kwargs)
        return wrapper
    return decorator

def func(x, y):
