You can access the instance.

def decorator(method):
     def _d(self, *args, **kwargs):
         print self.__dict__
         return method(self, *args, **kwargs)

     return _d

class Foo(object):

     def bar(self, a, b):
         print "bar"

f = Foo(), 2)

So what exactly it is you are missing? The method's locals()?

And could you explain *why* you are missing this?
