I am glad you understood the code but it seems you are still slightly 
confused about this ;)
Resizing does not require calculating all hashes again, but simply their 
relative positions in the table. Perhaps you could commit again with the 
different wording of the comment, so to clear this out once and for all? 
Mentioning that coder had in mind evenly populated hash table wouldn't 
go amiss. (hostnames, handles, help topics - all examples of such data, 
in my opinion)
