Comment (by nominolo):

 Hm, maybe we should split the description field into short-description and
 long-description or similar.  Or, like in Emacs introduce the convention
 that the first 80 characters or the first sentence are a short description
 of the respective package, to be used in overview pages.

 If people adds lots and lots of links to the description field, the layout
 of the package site on Hackage might also be less functional since some
 information would move down.
