What's "awesome" about it? I think we need less (gratuitously?)
inflated description in debian.

I lifted this description directly from the homepage:

http://www.intertwingly.net/code/venus/

I completely agree with your point and was intending to edit and
expand the description for the actual package. Appologies if you feel
I should have done this for the ITP.

No problem. Apparently opinions differ as to what should go in the ITP
(final description or not). I was commenting in case it was indeed the
final one. Thanks for clarification.

Laurent.
