I shouldn't think the proposed __func__ local would be of any use here,
because it is local to the function. As I understand your use-case, you
need to inspect a function from the outside, where __func__ is not
available, and peel back all the decorators to the innermost function.
To do that, I would start by looking at:
and recurse as necessary.
