Because there's no function overloading in Python, we then must have
explicit typing conditionals.

I haven't the time to dig through and compare this with the other fine
solutions presented; is there a reason that a proxy/facade PrimitiveType
wouldn't solve for this?

class TextThing:
  __init__(self, data):
      self.data = data
      self.type_ = type(data)
   __getattr__(self, key):
       return getattr(self.data, key)
