But why bother, when debtags does "implemented-in" does the job better?
Extra verbiage in the long description that adds no value for most users
is best simply left out. It will just make the description a longer
read (not to mention introducing possible "false hits" in an apt-cache
search) which is a net negative effect on the users that don't need or
want this information.
