Thank you, MRAB.
I'm sad about this restriction because:

    @recipe.product('*.html').ingreds('$(1).rst')
    def file_html(c):
        # do something

is enough simple and more readable than:

    @recipe.product('*.html')
    @recipe.ingreds('$(1).rst')
    def file_html(c):
        # do something

But I'll follow the Python's philosophy.
