Remove the use of ThreadLocal<T> in the decorator sub system #540

The use of ThreadLocal<T> within Simple Injector is problematic, whenever the user creates an infinite number of Container instances (which btw is a practice that is not encouraged). ThreadLocal<T> causes memory leaks when it is not disposed properly.

The decorator sub system currently makes use of ThreadLocal<T> instances to build a list of decorators used for a given registration. This information is then provided to predicates, to allow decorators to be applied conditionally.

Changes should be made to the decorator sub system, in such way that ThreadLocal<T> is only used for a short period of time (during the time that ExpressionBuilt events are running, for instance), so that caching of ThreadLocal<T> instance for the duration of the container can be prevented.

This prevents memory leaks, such as described in #539.
