[PySide] Slots - to decorate or not to decorate

Hi all,

I have been under the impression that using the decorator @QtCore.Slot() 
wasn't necessarily required in PySide to be able to use 
functions/methods as slots.
However, the more I am reading up on it, the more I am getting the 
feeling that, while it may not be necessary to use the decorator, it 
does make things more efficient because of the explicit signature 

Could somebody clarify the "best practice", when to use decorators and 
when they are not required? Or is it simply good practise to always use
