Oh, I probably want `return fn` inside my inner decorator. Otherwise, the
defined name gets bound to None in the global scope. I'm not sure, maybe
that's better... but most likely we should leave the name for other users.
I just wrote it without testing.

Keeping medicines from the bloodstreams of the sick; food
from the bellies of the hungry; books from the hands of the
uneducated; technology from the underdeveloped; and putting
advocates of freedom in prisons. Intellectual property is
to the 21st century what the slave trade was to the 16th.
