po: Tweak the French 'broadcast' and 'unicast' translations.

Surprisingly enough (for me) the existing translations match the term 
used in Microsoft's Terminology file:
   "broadcast address" -> "adresse de diffusion"
   "broadcast"         -> "diffusion"
   "multicast"         -> "multidiffusion"
   "unicast"           -> "monodiffusion"


But I still don't think they're good translations. I find 'diffusion' 
way too general and vague. Reading it I would certainly not make the 
link with broadcast, even in the domain of networking. Similarly I don't 
think 'monodiffusion' would be readily understood.

So I'm more enclined to follow Wikipedia which uses the untranslated 
terms as the title of their French articles:
