Reading from the documentation, it's not possible to set or replace the
Type. This is presumably because types are generally incompatible.
Further investigation shows the corresponding code has been commented out
back in 2008. However, the error message has not been modified accordingly
and is, indeed misleading. You're welcome to submit an issue on github about
that, or I can do it for you.

Long story short answer: if you really need the functionality and know what
you're doing, uncomment the corresponding code and rebuild.
