i've been hearing this since 1.5 => 2.0 (list comprehensions), then 2.2 (new object model), 2.4 (decorators)...

happy python programmer since 1.5, currently maintaining a code base in 3.7, happy about 3.8.

I cut my teeth on 2.2-2.4 and remember getting my hand slapped when 2.4 landed and I used a decorator for the first time.

It was to allow only certain HTTP verbs on a controller function. A pattern adopted by most Python web frameworks today.

That's especially funny given how everybody screams "that's not pythonic!!1!" nowadays when somebody does _not_ use a list comprehension...
