As a very new newbie, I'm staying out of the decorator discussion;
however, since there was a lot of talk about how readable the new syntax
would be to newbies, I went over to the wiki page and took a look at all
the proposed alternatives.

The only one I found readable-at-a-glance was J4 - coming from a
non-python background, it's a really attractive syntax, though it's the
first place I've seen indentation without a :

Anyway, I've got nothing invested in python as yet, so I'll happily
learn whatever syntax gets adopted - I just thought the perspective
would be helpful.
