Perhaps we should expand what ROP means here. I as able to figure it out
with some searching, but it would probably help non-domain experts know what
this package is for.

Thanks, I totally forgot about non-domain experts when writing that
description. What do you think about this revised version?

   (synopsis "Semiautomatic return oriented programming")
    "This tool lets you search for @acronym{ROP, Return Oriented Programming}
gadgets in binaries. Some facilities are included for automatically generating
chains of gadgets to execute system calls.")

That makes it clearer to me, thanks!

Also, is the file in which I've put this package right? I choose that
place because that's where radare2 is, and it has a relatively
similar purpose. However, radare2 is a loose fit already, so ROPgadget
would be two steps removed from the original purpose of the file...

Indeed. (Package) organization is difficult. I don't think I have any useful insights.
