[development] programmatically creating a node type.

following the examples in form.inc, I managed to programmatically create a new 
user (the import robot) and some new nodes.

Now I would like to create a node type for that robot user to post its nodes.

My question is how do I guess which arguments to call drupal_execute() with?

for the form id, I look at the html source:

<input type="hidden" name="form_id" id="edit-node-type-form" 
value="node_type_form"  />

so I do:

$values['name'] = 'node type test';
$values['type'] = 'node_type_test';
$values['description'] = 'my description.';
$values['comment'] = 0;
drupal_execute('node_type_form', $values);

but I get:

warning: call_user_func_array(): First argumented is expected to be a valid 
callback, 'node_type_form' was given in /includes/form.inc on line 181.

I don't understand: the 
function node_type_form($type = NULL) {
exists in:

Is this a bug?
What am I doing wrong?
