Well, afaik you cannot overload methods which belongs to different 
classes, even if one inherits from the other. Otoh, note that the 
Zaher's tip should work very well.

Imho a better approach is change the constructor name if you _really_ 
need to use two incompatible params list. Even better would be creating 
constructors with the same syntax. You can use default parameters to 
accomplish this.
