Not so fast, the report about methods being broken is still somewhat valid.
In that case `extern(C)` only affects the calling convention but not the
mangling, and has mentioned use-cases as callbacks.
It's relatively easy to just use different names for that use-case, so we might
decide to deprecate this overloading if that seems necessary.
