You guys are WAY over my head, and I'm supposed to be a C.S. junior!  :-\

Could someone give me an idea of what metaclasses and decorators _are_?

I think metaclasses are classes with their base methods overridden, correct?

And decorators are a form of delegation, right?

If so, where am I wrong?  And how do these techniques make for better code/coding?
