gopls/doc/ describe configuration for eglot

Now that joaotavora/eglot#367 is fixed, I think we should recommend it
as a serious alternative to LSP mode. This change describes both
packages, summarizes their different philosophies, and simplifies the
example LSP Mode configuration to avoid relying on another unnecessary
third-party package.

Users who need more detail on alternative configurations should
consult the LSP client vendors' pages — we don't need to recapitulate
all of that detail here.
