calling superclass __init__ when superclass is object

Hi list,

I was reading this article: http://fuhm.net/super-harmful/ and didn't
understand the comment about calling super(Foo, self).__init__() when
Foo inherits only from object. Can someone on the list elaborate more
on why one should do this?
