Hi Bruno,
   we had overloaded methods as of yesterday.


void updateCredential(Agent agent, Object value);
void updateCredential(Agent agent, Object value, Date effectiveDate, 
Date expiryDate);

Majority of the developers will choose the first method and advanced 
developers will choose the second.
