Sorry, typo here.

The syntax is really

    -- types type1, ..., typen


*without* the '='. My new parser for the "-- types" at the C level hardly does
any error checking, so it will accept the first (wrong) form, but return None
for that column, because it cannot find any type converter for the "= type1"
type :-/
