Interface types and sequence/array types are not #dfn-distinguishable so 
you cannot overload solely based on telling apart those types.  That's 
because any old object can be passed to a function expecting a 
sequence/array and its length property will be used to determine the 
length of the sequence/array.  Performing a runtime check for that 
length property seemed bad, so I just forbade overloading for such cases.
