Agreed!  Exactly!  Most of what people seem to want from decorators are 
a way to specify function types, do type checking, and give functions 
attributes / metadata.  As I've said before, these are seperable problems 
and should be treated as such.  What little left over that can 
benefit from general-purpose decoraters will likely not be enough to form
a major use case.
