The very long lengths seem to come mostly from lists of CTAN packages

Yes, I'm sure there are reasons for just putting everything into
the description of a package - but as this thread shows there are
also reasons against - and I wonder how many users are bored about
overlongish descriptions compared to those who grep apt-cache

Kind regards
