I don't think so.  Python uses duck typing, and one of the consequences of that is you can get weird errors if you pass in a type that sort-of-works but doesn't really.  Arbitrarily restricting the input type is not something we do (that's what the whole static type checking thing is about...doing that as an external lint process.)
