lupdate: Improve documentation of -recursive, -no-recursive
'the following' directories can be read in the sense that the arguments are positional, and that e.g. lupdate -no-recursive x -recursive y will scan x without subdirectories, but y with subdirectories. However this is not the case; -recursive and -non-recursive are binary options that affect all directories scanned in a run.
