Creating a small derived class and a new instance of it isn't that much of
an effort in Python, given you only need to reimplement the dropEvent
method. I don't think there are other solutions, based upon the doc's

Although I must say that I've came across some code here on the list some
time ago that showed how to capture click events on a QLabel without
subclassing it, so you might want to search for that snippet, since it's
basically the same combination of items (event on a QWidget)..
