I don't really agree.
First, as you guess, there's already a rather obvious one-liner:
Second, any decorator that implicitly spawns a thread is a very bad
idea (especially when used at module level...).
I'm rather opposed to this, it's a useless addition to the API with no
real point. Calling the Thread() constructor works basically ok.
