I've been working on a project that involves overloading and inheritance and
I've run into a bit of a problem. My code looks something like this:

class Base {
    void get(ubyte b);

class Derived: Base {
    alias Base.get get;
    void get(string s);

When I try to compile it, DMD says that the alias Derived.get conflicts with
Derived.get(string). This behavior makes sense to a degree (declaring
get(string) is creating a new overload instead of overriding an old one), but
it's probably not what anyone wants. It should be a fairly simple fix; just a
little special-case code in DMD for this type of alias or something...
