[Haskell-cafe] Overloading functions based on arguments?

I just came across a problem like this: Suppose I've got two related
functions that do similar things, and I want to call them the same...
foobar :: String -> Int -> Int
foobar :: Int -> String -> Int
(Bad example, but I hope you got the point.)
Is this kind of overloading (instead of the polymorphism based
overloading) possible in Haskell? Namely to have two functions with the
same name but different signatures so they could be distinguished by a
call's parameters? I fear not... So I guess I have to name the
functions differently, right?
