[PyKDE] question about tutorial

if a question like this does not belong in the mailing list, i apologize.

In the aclock.py tutorial
class AnalogClock(QWidget):
  def __init__(self, *args):
    apply(QWidget.__init__,(self,) + args)
    self.time = QTime.currentTime()
    internalTimer = QTimer(self)
    self.connect(internalTimer, SIGNAL("timeout()"), self.timeout)

there is a Qtimer created in the __init__ method, but isn't it local? Won't 
it be garbage collected upon exit of the method? Obviously it isn't because 
the demo works, but that really confuses me. Was some code put it so used 
QObjects aren't destroyed once they are out of scope?
