Ok, it's implemented already. You can try it if you checkout the svn

Well, if it were only a substitution thing, I could claim that the second 
argument of adddollsym defaults to the "$" character, and then the method 
would have a single case. But because the presence of a substitution char 
would also cause the method to not add an implicit leading "$", it looks 
more like two different methods stuck into just one.

What do you think ? Are there examples of methods that have multiple 
behaviours stuck together like that based on number of args ?
