bug#28514: Error in --help-text

Dear maintainer,

there is an error in the text issued by gzexe when invoked with

        gzexe --help

It says "Rename each FILE with a compressed version of itself" ...

It should say "Replace each FILE with a compressed version of itself" ...

In fact it should also explain better what the program does. Something like

        "Replace each FILE (assumed to be executable) by a compressed
        version of itself while retaining executability".

As it stands there is no indication that the result of an executable is still executable, which is of course the whole point.

Version info:
gzexe (gzip) 1.7

Hope this helps,
Mark Roberts
