The upstream description from the website is basically what I have now
(http://gondor.apana.org.au/~herbert/dash/), so I'm actually going to
leave it.

A lot of these suggestions look great, but we don't need to pedantic
here with our exact casing in case people can't figure out the
often-stupid naming schemes of their favorite programs. Another thing
to keep in mind- any description that includes the name of the package
or starts with "<packagename> is..." is too verbose. Keeping
descriptions to one line is also ideal as it keeps -Ss output clean.
