super is not a pseudo-keyword. It's a regular builtin object that 
interacts with some (quite clever) compiler magic that occurs when 
classes are created.

The big difference here is that the magic behind super helps to prevent 
serious bugs in user code. super's magic isn't to reduce typing, it is 
to solve a number of real problems with the way people use inheritence.
