Works for me.  I've been poking around the IPython site and lurking on the 
mailing lists.  I've played a bit with Twisted, but hadn't really looked at 
Decorators.  The name may have misled me, but they didn't seem important 
until I heard Brian's comment about how useful he found them.  This prompted 
me to take a closer look and I realized that they're essentially Heaviside 
operators.  That insight was worth attending the meeting.
