I'd be willing to do this this weekend (esp. being Python Bug Day),
assuming Skip doesn't get to it first.
On a related note, I suggest anyone interested read this thread on
python-dev, "Call for defense of @decorators":
In it, Guido makes some very interesting remarks, most notably:
I also want to find out about superior syntax proposals (from __future__
import decorators might be acceptable).
... I suggest that the proponents of syntax alternatives will have
to agree amongst themselves on a single alternative that they can
present to me.
