You aren't missing a thing.  The functionality is there, but we have 
not exposed it.  Rather, we provided an older mechanism in v1, but we 
took it back out for v2 because we didn't have time to finish it for 
the new type-system.

This feature is on the high priority list.  We will try to get it 
re-exposed in the next two minor releases.

(4x) Hooray!!
