I hadn't thought of it that way before - as 'foo' the one doing the 
using. Instead I read it as the programmer/language is using the 
decorators in the process of defining foo - they're sort of tools being 
used in the construction of the method.

I'm +0 on 'using' as the keyword and -1 on most of the alternates. :)
