Re: Manpage pyksoko, could you have a look

Sorry, I hadn't noticed this reply when I wrote mine.

Wait, the synopsis of the package description?  Where's that?  I
thought we were just reviewing the man page.

With the nonnativisms filtered out this would make a good basis for a
Debian package description, but let's transplant in that material
about not depending on KDE.  Something like:

  Description: logic game based on KSokoban
   pyKsoko is a clone of the puzzle game sokoban, using a default skin
   taken from the KSokoban shipped with KDE 3.5.x (but not depending on
   KDE). The game also has a "modern" skin, and over 5000 levels.
   Background music for the game can be downloaded from its homepage.
   You play a warehouse keeper ("sokoban" in Japanese) trying to push
   crates to their proper locations in a warehouse without letting them
   get into dead ends or block movement; crates cannot be pulled or
   stepped over.

(Pedantic footnote: in fact the Japanese for warehouse keeper is
"sōkoban", but never mind the macron.)
