Decorator that converts a method with a single self argument into a
property cached on the instance.
A cached property can be made out of an existing method:
(e.g. ``url = cached_property(get_absolute_url)``).

Call the function and put the return value in instance.__dict__ so that
subsequent attribute access on the instance returns the cached value
instead of calling cached_property.__get__().
