Yes, sorry, but I'm in a pickle here. I want (we need) the general idea
of decorators --- the realm of problems that decorators try to solve ---
to be made smaller. They should not be used to declare a method's type
(static|instance|class). Decorators may have some valid purpose, but
this is not one of them.

Thanks, but it's not my idea (well, a tiny part maybe). The idea of
inferring a method's type from the name of its first formal parameter
was suggested by Stefan Eischet in another thread.
