Is there a way of decorating method1 of class C using method2 of class C?
It seems like there's a chicken-and-the-egg problem; the class doesn't
seem to know what "self" is until later in execution so there's
apparently no way to specify @self.method2 when def'ing method1.
Class code is executed in a new local namespace, which later becomes the
class attribute space. So you can (sort of), but I cannot see a reason
to do so.
del deco # because it is not really a method

c = C()

If deco is decorated as a staticmethod, it has to be called on the class
or an instance thereof after the class is constructed. If deco is
defined outside the class, it can be used both inside and outside.
