Are you looking for the source code of the dynamically created wrapper 
function (effectively the piece that calls the original function) or of 
the wrapped function?  (the piece that ultimately gets called?)

I'm pretty sure you can't get source from the executable function 
(python 2.x anyway), but with your naming scheme, it may be possible to 
trace into the wrapped function's source.
