I'm sure I'm going to ruffle some feathers here, but I don't mind descriptions 
that take up more than one line. While I agree that a module designer should 
be able to clearly and consicly describe their module, I think there are far 
too many who go to the other extreme and don't put enough words in the 
description to state what the module's purpose is.
