Subject Change field type

I made a mistake when I originally designed a table column and
specified "Smallint" rather than "Integer".

Now its coming back to haunt me and I have to change it to Integer.

Unfortunately I have a bunch of dependent objects so the only way I
can think of to correct the column type is to add another temporary
column of the correct type, change all the dependent objects to the
new temp field, alter the column type of the old field, change all the
dependent object back to the original field.

Is there some easier way to do this?
