Default Bug#465691: ITP: CinePaint program description

> This needs a *short* description..:-)

The CinePaint description you're referring to is many years old.
Something like this could be more appropriate:

CinePaint is a deep paint image retouching tool.

> and move the rest to the *long* description.

CinePaint is used to retouch feature films and in pro photography.
CinePaint opens high fidelity image file formats such as DPX, 16-bit
TIFF, and OpenEXR, and conventional formats like JPEG and PNG. It has a
flipbook for movie playback of image sequences in RAM. It supports
8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit color channels, HDR and CMS.

CinePaint is used for motion picture frame-by-frame retouching, dirt
removal, wire rig removal, render repair, background plates, and
painting 3D model textures. It's been used on many feature films,
including "The Last Samurai" where it was used to add flying arrows.

For still photography, CinePaint can import bracketed HDR exposures. It
has gallery-quality 16-bit per channel color printing with GutenPrint.
CinePaint's high dynamic range is crucial with B&W still photography,
where images only have a single channel.
