Bug#632146: libemail-send-perl: description encourages using the module, contrary to its documentation

Here's the first paragraph from Email::Send(3pm):
Email::Send is going away... well, not really going away, but it's being
officially marked "out of favor." It has API design problems that make it
hard to usefully extend and rather than try to deprecate features and
slowly ease in a new interface, we've released Email::Sender which fixes
these problems and others. As of today, 2008-12-19, Email::Sender is
young, but it's fairly well-tested. Please consider using it instead for
any new work.
Compare this to the text in the package's long description:
Email::Send provides a very simple, very clean, very specific interface to
multiple mailers. The goal of this software is to be small and simple, easy
to use, and easy to extend.
I think upstream's wish of phasing out the module should e reflected somehow in
the long description.
