I don't think that sort of concept really makes sense in Python. 
Type-casting in C/C++ just determines the particular interface through 
which your code is then accessing the object, it doesn't change the 
object's intrinsic type. Python only ever deals with an object's 
intrinsic type since it's a dynamically typed language.

However, the problem may be that the sip translation is not translating 
that subclass. See my earlier patch for some subclass mapping that Jim 
extended and incorporated into one of the 3.8rc releases.
