Setting "value" of an int-derived class

Lets say I want an integer class that lets you attach arbitrary
attributes. I can simply do:
class foo(int): pass
x = foo(5)
x.text = "okay"
print x, x.text # prints "5 okay"
So, that's good. But, how can I change the value of x from 5 to
something else, without creating a new instance?
I suppose I could create a function that creates a new "foo" and copies
its attributes, but is there a more direct way? Is the value "5" stored
in some special attribute I can just directly modify?
