This is bad, func should be a function and not an instance
method (see line 49 of decorator.py). If the .signature
attribute of the FunctionMaker is missing, than that's the
reason for the AssertionError you see.
I should probably raise a clearer error message.
I lack the context to see how this could be fixed in your case, but
this a not a show stopper, you can just keep the original decorator
and forget about making it signature preserving.
