I had considered adding one-line descriptions of the packages to the
FAQ, because I think it would be useful to have this information
available somewhere.  Before downloading & installating the package,
that is.  But I'm concerned that it would take too much space, and the
FAQ is already HUGE.  I'm open to suggestions.  I'm happy to add it if
it would help.
