This was addressed on one of the webinars:
(Keep in mind the time is 7:08)

I prefer to be explicit with it,
so it's:

QWidget.__init__(self, parent)

Since time to time I had issues using super()
when inheriting from multiple classes.

But the three described ways are equivalent,
and there is no "proper way" AFAIK.
