SPListItem Update - Systemupdate vs UpdateOverwriteVersion

I am programmatically updating some metadata fields in a document library.  The item update command I am using is  item.SystemUpdate(false) because I do not want to update the last modified information on all the documens in the list.   The probelm is I also do not want to create a new version either and SystemUpdate(false) does create a new version.   I see I could use item.UpdateOverwriteVersion as it will not create a new version of the document; however it does update the modifed information.
Is there a way to do both?  Not update modified info and not create a new version.

Even UpdateOverwriteVersion() creates a new version if minor versioning is turned on. Just to keep things interesting. :)

Thanks for the info.  I will check out the solution to see if it will fit with what I am trying to do.   I was going to try and just temporarily turn off versioning when I run my update program however that would more than likely remove all existing versions to the list items I update.  They certainly dont make this easy.
