I'll change your "probably be" to "": it WOULD be preferable to call  
the most specific version of an overloaded function.  ChucK's class  
system has single, straight-line inheritance, so the "most specific"  
is always well defined.  The current scheme -- using the (lexically)  
first function definition -- seems fraught with astonishment.

Thanks for digging into this.
