Re: "Polymorphic" in OSL manual

"polymorphic" appears exactly once in the docs, I have changed to "overloaded." No biggie.

Reading these two

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_polymorphism

suggests that what OSL provides is ad-hoc polymorphism, or otherwise
known as overloading. I guessing adding "ad-hoc" or changing to
"overloaded" would be fine, though I think the later is more familiar.
I know if I saw "ad-hoc polymorphism" I would Google it.
