The idea behind this is that the initialize method is important for
the widget to run.
It saves the programmer from having to invoke super in correct
location in #initialize.
AR follows this approach, so I think I assumed that it was a common
(and nice to have) pattern. I'd like to hear if its useful to anybody
I don't use it myself.
I cannot think of why it was not tested. It was probably an oversight
of some sort.
