Eric and Paul, I've attached a substantial rewrite of the docs for the *type* parameter:

* Document the exceptions that are handled.
* Show a wider range of examples that work with *type*.
* Discuss when *type* shouldn't be used:  bool, JSONDecoder, etc.
* Create a less whimsical example of a user-defined type converter.
* Explain the interaction between *type* and *default*.

Let me know what you think.
