Hi Brad,

sorry for being a little sparse on my reply, but I'm glad, you figured 
it out with the help of Zoli.

As an aside, could you ask kmail to NOT add a Reply-To: header for 
messages to this list, please? They're a real PITA. Netizens are 
usually able to decide themself to whom they want to reply. For this 
kind of conversation in such a low traffic ML, a single answer to the 
list is the best fit IMHO (which is subverted by the Reply-To: 
lists at ralph.id.au header).

No, super is perfectly fine for new style classes, even if you don't 
inherit from multiple classes (which doesn't work well, if more then 
one inherits from QObject).

In fact, it lowers the risk of refactoring and copy/paste errors.
