I found the page to be a discussion about decorators
(unsurprisingly given the URL) and not containing
the word "descriptor" at all...

Note that the remark from Steve is on the topic of descriptors.
I suppose the first advice to anybody wanting to learn about
either descriptors or decorators is to not confuse them
with the other thing.
