I've seen a few discussion about the use of 'super' in Python, including 
the opinion that 'super' should only be used to solve inheritance 
diamond problem. (And that a constructor that wants to call the 
superclass methods should just call them by name and forget about super.)
What is people's opinion on this? Does it make any sense?
