Also, it impresses me when a package description says something like "if

There was, not so long ago, a complaint about "apt-cache search"
returning useless matches because descriptions tended to include stuff
not relevent to them. Like searches for "perl" would match php,
because they listed a "competitor".

If your package doesn't have feature X then you probably shouldn't be
mentioning it in the description.

What you say is nice to know, but the description is not the right place.

Have a nice day,
