While decorators have been introduced since Python 2.4, there continues to 
be no index reference to it in the Python Language Reference. Given this 
being a major language feature, I think it is an oversight.

In the 2.6 and 3.0 docs, decorators do have an index entry, see

My mistake for including 2.6. While having a link to an entry in the 
Glossary is a huge improvement, it comes about as a result of the index 
now covering all components of the Python documentation. I feel at the 
least, there should be a link within the glossary entry back to the 
appropriate sections in the Language Reference.

OK, I've added a back-link in r67591.
