Wikipedia on polymorphism

I just glanced at the entry for polymorphism in the Wikipedia, and I think that for OO languages the text is too restrictive as it says that OO languages provide polymorphism by inheritance only. Well, that's not really so, particularly with Smalltalk. Thus, I just fixed it.

Now, I am sure there are other places that could use a bit of generalization due to Smalltalk and other languages like it. I am really surprised, however, that the entry for polymorphism did not make reference to Smalltalk. It doesn't take that much time to fix so, really, what's holding us up?

And hey, if my edits are flat out wrong... you know what to do :).
