[docs] [issue15269] Document dircmp.left and dircmp.right

New submission from Chris Jerdonek <chris.jerdonek at gmail.com>:

The documentation for the filecmp.dircmp class doesn't mention dircmp.left and dircmp.right.

Being aware of this up front would make certain simplifications easier to think of.  For example, knowing about these attributes opens up the possibility of passing dircmp instances around without having to pass the two paths separately (e.g. in certain recursive algorithms involving dircmp).  Knowing this also means you can recover the two paths if using the subdirs attribute (whose values are dircmp instances).
