  I completely agree with Eric here, the description is user data
and we cannot modify it. Now what you want is a short description
i.e. a title and that was added in 0.9.10


  use that construct instead but don't ask us to modify description
because it is in use already for complex use case and I will definitely
not modify that data on input, it would be a terrible regression.
