So if both methods take the exact same argument type, the answer is
"it depends".  If they are different, it doesn't really matter since
the sorting algorithm for the extension list doesn't look at the
method names, only the argument types.  So the "higher derived" one
will always come first.

HashMap, no matter how the methods are called.

Ant is supposed to rely largely on committers and developers and users
running all flavors of OSes 8-)
