dpkg and apt will only show one description of a package.  Not everyone on a
machine reads the same language.

It's nice that you are doing the storing of these translations, but if the
admin of a system limits the descriptions that dpkg has stored, I would be
none too happy with the admin.

"If I can't use it now, it is my problem."  How can I use it?  You are saying
I have a choice in whether I use a translated description.  However, there is
no choice, as dpkg and apt do not support it.
