Well, that's another thing! I was referring to C++-like
overloading (i. e. several definitions of the same method,
to be tested in order until the parameters fit). But I've
already been told that's not possible.

Oh yes, I could make a function that gives me the prime numbers
I need. But I'd become old and die while the interpreter is still
calculating. :) Thanks anyway.
