In this case "in the same state as that after an equivalent sizing
constructor" means that

ublas::vector<double> vec;
 // any changes to vec

is semantically equivilient to
   ublas::vector<double> vec(N);

In the case ublas::vector and bounded_vector this means that the values become
undefined. I not sure of a better way to express this.

The definitition is intentionally tied to that of the sizing constructor. In
the case of sparse types they can give a zeroing guarantee for the sizing
constructor (and resize) at no runtime cost.
