Addresses GB-115

There is no mention of what happens if sz==size(). While it obviously does nothing I feel a standard needs to say this explicitely.

[ Resolution proposed in ballot comment ]

Express the semantics as pseudo-code similarly to the way it is done for the copying overload that follows (in p3). Include an else clause that does nothing and covers the sz==size() case.

[ 2010 Batavia ]

Accepted with a simplified resolution turning one of the < comparisons into <=.

Proposed resolution:

Ammend [list.capacity] p1:

void resize(size_type sz);

Effects: If sz <= size(), equivalent to list<T>::iterator it = begin(); advance(it, sz); erase(it, end());. If size() < sz, appends sz - size() default constructed value initialized elements to the sequence.
