this is a small proposal to add a new function to the functools module which provides better profiling-compatible `@functools.wraps(...)`

the rationale comes from (which is dead / abandoned)

the tl;dr from there is any time a decorator is involved in a profile it becomes very difficult to trace because everything becomes tangled around common decorators (because function names are used from the code object)

here is the proposal and an initial implementation:

def wraps_with_name(func, decorator, **kwargs):
    def wraps_with_name_decorator(wrapped):
        new_name = f'{func.__name__}@{decorator.__name__}'
        new_code = wrapped.__code__.replace(co_name=new_name)
        # would be nice if `types.FunctionType` had a `.replace(...)` too!
        new_wrapped = types.FunctionType(
        return functools.wraps(func, **kwargs)(new_wrapped)
    return better_wraps_decorator

the usage would be similar to `functools.wraps`, here is an example:

def my_decorator(func):
    @functools.wraps_with_name(func, my_decorator)
    def my_decorator_inner(*args, **kwargs):
        return func(*args, **kwargs)
    return my_decorator
