As an occasional lurker, I haven't had a chance to participate in the 
discussion about decorator syntax but for what its worth, I prefer the 
J2 syntax over the @pie syntax. It just seems more natural to me. When I 
first looked at the @pie syntax, I hoped that Guido would not include it 
as it reminded me too much of Perl black magic.

Anyway, my vote is for the J2 option and "using" as the keyword seems to 
be the best fit for this option.
