Coercion and Laurent polynomial

Hi! Is there a simple way to make easy coercion from Symbolic Ring to Laurent polynomial ring (or even algebraic extension)? I've only been able to bypass the problem by the following trick (and due the amount of time I've spent on this I'm happy to share it!) :

# Polynomial in the Symbolic Ring
P = t^3 + 1/10*t + 3*t^-1

# Laurent polynomial     
ringS.<t> = LaurentPolynomialRing(QQ)  

#PP = ringS(P)  # Not working
PP = ringS(sage_eval(str(P),locals={'t':t}))

print P, P.parent()
print PP, PP.parent()
