      Description

      Many people have requested that descriptions show in the list view. I'd like to suggest that we develop mockups and/or prototypes of various approaches to this. We may even want to do some user testing or focus groups. Here are some ideas we might consider:

        1) Description appears in the "title" attribute of the tag so it appears when the user points cursor at the link. I think this may not work well in some browsers.

        2) Description appears indented under the title of the resource

        3) Site maintainer can set options for whether description appears. Possible settings might be "Do not show descriptions in list", "Show X characters of description", "Show first X lines of description", "Show complete descriptions".

        4) Same as 3, but allow user to override maintainer's settings for current session (similar to user overriding mainatiner's settings for date/time or number of messages shown in chat)
