99% of overloaded methods do work. The small number that don't (of which 
QWMatrix.map is one) is because they they have signatures that are too similar 
and SIP can't distinguish between them.

I have a patch from Toby Sargeant that might fix this which I'll look at once 
I've finished integrating his OpenGL support.

The real problem with QWidget.reparent() is that the second overloaded method 
is simply missing. I should get around to adding it to the CVS later this
