I was hoping that when the compiler finds decorators with wrapers that
have the same signature it can some how "magically" combine them into
one function (which gets called at run time) and not have 5 nested
function calls. That is similar to what I will have to do eventually.

Given python's dynamic nature, I'm sure there are reasons why this is
not done.
