I suspect that adding a global that if set wraps the @method decorator

 f(*args, **kwargs)
except e: 
 print e
 raise e

wouldn't be hard to do and patches are welcome.  You need to be careful
though since method annotates the python method so whatever the wrapping
decorator returns needs to be the callable object that is annotated.
