At a high level, the code for a method named "foo" is (untested code 
that omits error handling and ref counting):
   override = PyObject_GetAttrString(pySelf, "foo");
   if (override != NULL) {
     result = PyObject_Call(override, args...);
     return result;
   else {
     return C++BaseClass::foo(args...);

Best way to get a more detailed look (for me, at least) is to look at 
the generated code.  In a built PySide tree, look at 
PySide/QtGui/PySide/QtGui/qwidget_wrapper.cpp in the build directory. 
The QWidgetWrapper::setVisible method is the override for the 
QWidget::setVisible method.
