Thinking again about this point, the problem here is that it was Soren
and I that wrote the existing short descriptions. I would like to
descriptions of packages to be longer and more informative, but I don't
think either Soren or myself can do more that the terse phrase we have
already included for the packages we don't support. Patch the
DESCRIPTION file to add a longer description. Note this same description
will be used in the creation of the srpms as well.

I would like to see a one sentence description on the
package listing and a one paragraph description on the
detail page.  Maybe we can use the 'first sentence is
summary' trick here.

I will see what I can do tonight to write some longer
package descriptions.
