the Python Field type should return the value that is used to create a field.

    In python, the type property of a Field object doesn't match the type value that was used to create the field.    This is big problem when dealing with GUID and SHORT fields, because the returned field type is SmallInteger for both.

    Some examples.

    Field type           |      Value to Create
    Property            |       Field
    Integer              |        LONG
    SmallInteger      |        SHORT
    String                |        TEXT
    SmallInteger      |        GUID
