Apply a decorator to all methods in a class matching a regular expression.
The given decorator is applied to all public methods of cls that are matched by the regular expression testmatch (
testmatch.search(methodname)). Methods that are private, i.e. start with an underscore, are ignored.

re.compile(r'(?:^|[\b_\.%s-])[Tt]est' % os.sep)) is used. If testmatch is a string, it is compiled to a regular expression first.
