[PATCH] egrep: use easier language

From: Jan Engelhardt
Subject: [PATCH] egrep: use easier language

The warning left me a bit puzzled. "obsolescent" is a somewhat unusual word 
and "using" seemed like a misspelling of a request to the user ("(do) use
grep -E (in the future)"). egrep is not really using grep, but delegating to it.
All in all, having to even think about led me to offer this substitution.
