There is a overload too. It signals that you really want to overload a method, not just
tried to inherit, but got the parameters wrong.

Usually yes, though there are times when large commits are done, when the
ride is a bit rough. 

In general, 
- if you can build FPC yourself, you can use 1.1 (since you can always build another one).
- more often building eats a bit more bandwidth.
- _always_ keep the last version/build/snapshot that worked for you as back-up.
- Always try to start building 1.1 using the release compiler if there are problems with 1.1 CVS

If you have broadband, just build 1.1 from time to time, and if you don't
have problems with that build, stick to it for a while etc, while keeping the old one as backup
