More to the point, GvR seems to have decided that decorators, as
something that *wraps* a function, belong *outside* the function def
rather than inside it. Being inside the def implies that it's internal
to the function, which decorators are not.
I can see the logic in that, but I really dislike the contorted prefix
syntax that's necessary to support the alternative.
