crecord: rewrite help string to avoid mentioning "crecord"

Despite its heritage, "crecord" is now mostly Mercurial-internal
jargon. I find it better to call it "the curses hunk selector".

Also slightly rewrote the part about which commands can use it. While
I do believe that commit, shelve, and revert are the only commands in
core that can use it, Evolve also adds at least amend and uncommit to
the list.

-crecord allows you to interactively choose among the changes you have made,

-you are running (commit/shelve/revert), after confirming the selected
