The undocumented behavior of parameterized modules has changed since  
R11B.  A minor change to the compiler would permit usage of ":new" only if  
there does not exist a function having the same name and same arity.  The  
current behavior checks for only the same name.  Please consider this  
change to be included in a future release.
