Immutable types cannot be changed in __init__. They are initialized in
__new__, which is normally invisible. So you have to overide that if you
wish to affect the value. Google previous posts for its calling sequence.
int, str, tuple, etc do not have __init__ methods since there is nothing
more to once instances are initialized.
