Correct. I don't find decorators all that useful or tasteful.

Closures I consider ordinary programming. Nothing meta there.

Introspection is suspect in general.

Haven't used (or at least defined) them.

Please, no.

Lisp-style macros (or scheme syntax rules) are rather a clean way to do
that, but even that mechanism should be used very sparingly and

> No namedtuples, Enums, or data-classes.

They don't seem all that meta to me, but coincidentally I never found
uses for them in my Python code.
