Not really.

If we want to handle languages that don't have overloading, then we need 
to make the IDL always require a separate name for the overloaded 
functions. We could just say that lack of such a name means that the 
function isn't included, and only the last function in an IDL block with 
a particular name is included if overloading isn't supported.
