Well, uh, who else would process it?

"use strict' and 'my epsilon' in perl are executed by the perl
interpreter as well, but they have a declarative flavor.

A decorator is a modifier to a subsequent binding, and it modifies the
reference and not the referent. So how is it anythng but declarative?
