According to the section on function overloading [1], this is a 
"match with implicit conversions." Numeric literals like 0 and 1 
can be implicitly converted to bool [2], so that isn't a bug, 
even if it is confusing in this case.

I think people could disagree on whether the enum part of the 
example is a bug. Maybe more of an enhancement request to have 
different handling for function overloads with enums? The enum 
values are being treated like literals instead of as ints.
