  Accept non-standard slack-desc for installpkg --terse.
Thanks PatV. Obviously, I went and fixed my own packages but that will help any others out there who made this same mistake.

... Great community-driven thinking and implementation! Now what we really need is a command to read all the long descriptions, as so much typing work has been put in them to be written, that they should also be read; it would go somewhere along these lines:

ls /var/log/packages | while read fn
    START=`cat /var/log/packages/${fn} | grep -n "PACKAGE DESCRIPTION" | cut -d ':' -f 1`
    END=`cat /var/log/packages/${fn} | grep -n "FILE LIST" | cut -d ':' -f 1`
    cat /var/log/packages/${fn} | head -n ${END} | tail -n ${LINES} | cut -d ':' -f 2

    echo -n "Press -enter- for the next package"
    read go_on
Also, what'd have been cool is an animated ascii of a penguin with a wizard hat telling how fast and more stable everything has become... ^.^

Oh, sorry, I wasn't thinking of this as a problem, but a discussion. But I marked it.
