Um...they were introduced in 2.4 which was released in late 2004.  So
they've only been around for about (almost exactly) a decade.  Not
sure that qualifies as "new in Python".

And decorators are used pretty regularly in just about every
code-base that I've touched (I've been programming in Python since
early 2004, so I've maintained pre-2.4 code without decorators and
then brought it forward to 2.4 where decorators were usable).
