Javadoc: incorrect behavior explained for ListUtils.transformedList

                 Key: COLLECTIONS-288
             Project: Commons Collections
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: List
            Reporter: Paul Benedict
             Fix For: 3.3

The contract stated for ListUtils.transformedList is wrong. The list is not transformed --
it decorates the existing list and transforms NEW objects -- EXISTING objects are not transformed.

Compare this to the javadoc found in MapUtils.transformedMap:
"This method returns a new map (decorating the specified map) that will transform any new
entries added to it. Existing entries in the specified map will not be transformed. "

That little missing piece of information messed me up. Just replace "map" with "list" and
append it to the existing LilstUtils javadoc.
