Wait. Are you saying that unless I show you a codebase that requires
marshalling and static analysis, you will ignore the fact that a
project, no matter its size, may require more than one annotation type?
In other words, lets suggest function annotations as a restrictive
feature, instead of a feature that can adapt to more than one use case.

That is your price. My price is seeing my executable code cluttered with
static fluff. Very pythonesc, I suppose...
