[twill] Why are hidden fields read-only?

I'm using Twill and I tried to fill in a form which has a hidden field.

Twill doesn't let me fill in the hidden field, saying it's read-only:

    AttributeError: control 'user' is readonly

Why is this? What's the problem with writing to a hidden field?

Thanks for your help,
Ram Rachum.
