Replace MOSS 2007 built-in Approval Workflow

SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) comes with a built-in workflow for content approval.

In some situations you might wish to replace this approval with you own custom workflow.

The tricky thing is how to accomplish this. While you can easily add new workflows to a list or a content type, I cannot figure out how the existing built-in workflow is replaced automatically.

The DefaultContentApprovalWorkflowId property seems to be solution - the only issue is that it doesn't work as the built-in workflow is not replaced.

Any ideas?
