Thank you, Anders, for your honesty. I also find writing decorators a
bit hard. It seems to be something I have to learn anew each time I do
it. Particularly for the pattern

@deco(arg1, arg2)
def fn(arg3, arg4):
    # function body

Perhaps doing something with partial might help here. Anyone here
interested in exploring this?
