Patch for ftp://ftp-master.debian.org/pub/UploadQueue/README to mention dcut-ng


having had the need to reschedule something from DELAYED I was
looking at ftp://ftp-master.debian.org/pub/UploadQueue/README and
the provided steps haven't been 100% clear to me.

But instead of having to follow all those steps manually dcut-ng's
dcut command line tool provides the features directly within one
single command line, so it might be worth mentioning that. Attached
patch takes care of that. Feel free to apply/adjust as needed.
