I've not seen anything special in Pylons or TurboGears 2 decorators,
except that they are all functions that use the decorator package --
while my decorator is a class that doesn't use the decorator package

My attempt to turn that decorator into a signature preserving one
using the decorator packages fails even on TurboGears 2. As of
decorator 3.0.1, I get this error:
    TypeError: You are decorating a non function: <unbound method

Isn't this caused by the fact that my decorator is a class, or the way
such a class is defined (whose code is in the first post of the
thread)? I can turn it into a function because I'm sure I'll work --
although I wanted a class to make it easier to customize.
