I guess a better Description: would be 'dd clone which ignores read errors'.

But I see in the dd man page:

       conv=KEYWORDS
              convert the file as per the comma separated keyword list

       [...] Each KEYWORD may be:
[...]
       noerror
              continue after read errors
[...]
So perhaps an explanation what dd_rescue does differently should be in the 
(long) description.
