I have, now.

Nicely crafted.  but I do think I had the info I needed to vote, from the
discussion.

And I am not arguing that J2 is not "better", in some sense. But I am
concluding that the normal rules for better don't apply here.

There is some other syntactical aim here that I wouldn't call "sugar". Once
again, in the context of "decorators", we might need a new word to express
what the intention is here.

If a core argument in favor is to shortcut programmer input, I think it
should be expressed as an unadorned shortcut.  And think @ expresses the
intent, in this respect more baldly and clearly.

Put me as against.

It should clinch it for you ;)
