> Does super.widgetCount call the superclass’s `widgetCount`, or does it call the superclass’s implementation of the same getter, then call `widgetCount` on the returned Int?

Without offering an opinion either way on this proposal, I will note that the alternative suggestion of `super()` does not suffer from this ambiguity.
