Use the /TransferThis/ option on the parent argument. Look at the .sip
file for any PyQt class that is derived from QObject.

The result is that the generated code transfers ownership (ie.
responsibility for calling the dtor) for the new instance to the parent
object (so long as the parent object is non-zero).
