git-imap-send.txt: add note about localized Gmail folders

The name of the "Special-Use Mailboxes" in Gmail are localized
using the user's localization settings. Add a note to that effect
in `git imap-send`'s documentation, to make it easier for users to
configure their account.

You might need to instead use: `folder = "[Google Mail]/Drafts"` if you get an error
that the "Folder doesn't exist".
If your Gmail account is set to another language than English, the name of the "Drafts"
folder will be localized.
