The patch supplied was in reverse, but the bug report was correct. You can't pass "type=string" since there's no string callable, only a str callable.

The docstring is confusing because the quotes make it looks like we mean the string 'str', when we actually mean the callable 'str'. Maybe they should be `str` or ``str``? Not sure what the syntax for code, not string literals, is for docstrings.

Anyway, this should be an easy fix for a doc person.
