That's a relief - I obviously had "heard" right!

Well, I'd kind of assumed that, given my "memory" of the first point.
But of the schemes that won't be adopted, that's the one *I* preferred.
(my own sense of "locality" means that I would prefer to be placing
function attributes near the declaration of the function, especially
given my penchant for long docstrings which move the end of the function
off-screen. But then I haven't *used* them yet, and I assume this sort
of point has been taken into account. And anyway I definitely prefer
your sense of language design to mine).
