Bug#749594: ITP: python-wrapt -- decorators, wrappers and monkey patching

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Thomas Goirand <zigo@debian.org>

* Package name    : python-wrapt
  Version         : 1.8.0
  Upstream Author : Graham Dumpleton <Graham.Dumpleton@gmail.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/GrahamDumpleton/wrapt
* License         : BSD-2-clause
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : decorators, wrappers and monkey patching

 The aim of the wrapt module is to provide a transparent object proxy for
 Python, which can be used as the basis for the construction of function
 wrappers and decorator functions.
 The wrapt module focuses very much on correctness. It therefore goes way
 beyond existing mechanisms such as functools.wraps() to ensure that decorators
 preserve introspectability, signatures, type checking abilities etc. The
 decorators that can be constructed using this module will work in far more
 scenarios than typical decorators and provide more predictable and consistent
 To ensure that the overhead is as minimal as possible, a C extension module is
 used for performance critical components. An automatic fallback to a pure
 Python implementation is also provided where a target system does not have a
 compiler to allow the C extension to be compiled.

This is yet-another-dependency for OpenStack (for next release: Juno).
