Actually, the documentation (the "howto") states:

Note that object() must explicitly support each Python type you specify for the type argument. Currently it only supports str. It should be easy to add more, just edit Tools/clinic/clinic.py, search for O! in the text, and add more entries to the dict mapping types to strings just above it.

Maybe this is a bad API.  But it's not broken.
