Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Comment

Well, Guido has always been clear on what decorator syntax he preferred. And in the old days, we used to trust his intuition; if he didn't like something, it stayed out of the language. That was, of course, what made Python so damn good.

I'm less impressed by the current design-by-arguing-until-nobody-cares-anymore approach. I really hope we won't see too much of that in the future...
