I think I didn't understand what exactly the "(x integer)" in that code 
was.  Now I think it's like a tuple (or something similar) that's passed 
to the code in the background that has to select the "wanted version" of 
a function or method at runtime.   :-)

So, what some people want is defining functions in a way similar to this:

def foo(a, b) for (type1, type2):
    print "type 1 & 2"

def foo(a, b) for (type3, type4):
    print "type 3 & 4"
