Well, I don't _really_ miss overloading that much. Not enough to try to
squeeze it into Python when I know it's an idiom that doesn't really fit.
Your code was kind of elegant, but kind of misses the point with
overloading, I think. At least, it's not anything I'd want to do in most
situations where overloading would have been nifty in C++. IMHO.
