documentation bug on new gale_ryser_theorem()

In the module sage/combinat/, the documentation for the function gale_ryser_theorem() should be fixed as per the following suggestion:

On the recently added
there's a documentation bug (also present on the changelog)

"The Gale Ryser theorem asserts that if p1;p2  are two partitions of
n  of respective lengths k1;k2 , then there is a binary k1Âk2  matrix
M  such that p1  is the vector of row sums and p2  is the vector of
column sums of M , if and only if p2  dominates p1 ."

At the end it should say

"p2  conjugate (transpose) dominates p1"

The theorem is mis-stated yet the function seems to be working

See this sage-devel thread for the original bug report.

Applies fine to 4.3.2.a0 and passes all but the 2 tests that failed previously on a mac 10.6.2.

Good docstring patch. Thanks Nathann!

Positive review.
