I'm really not sure what I don't like about the @ syntax. Most of
the time it's the idea that a statement at a given indentation level
affects *just* the next suite, not the rest of the file. Then I look
at the J options (other than J1) which are doing much the same thing
and seem reasonable (if not my first choice), and think maybe it's
the line-noise effect of the "@". But decorators aren't something I
can see myself making much (if any) use of, so I'll live with
whatever they turn out as.
