That is true, but I think it is very uncommon to have such a set of methods — and afaics, it would violate the guidelines for method names.

But speaking of additional characters that might be useful:
What about the parameter types? When they are needed to identify the exact function, it would be nice if they could be included as well.

(that's why I wanted to avoid the parenthesis in the first place…)
