[php-maint] Bug#528833: Please remove language bias from php5-cli package description

In the description of php5-cli it says:
"....This package provides the /usr/bin/php5 command interpreter, useful for
testing PHP scripts from a shell, or perhaps even performing general
shell scripting tasks, if you're frightened of perl and python..."
It has been requested on the Ubuntu devel-discuss ML  to make this more neutral.
I'm providing a patch to fix this inline:
