If there was any way to re-use the slack-desc's 'app (shortdesc)' line I
think that would be much better than duplicating the info with a new
.info field. I have no idea about the backend but it seems like a db
column could be populated from the slack-descs once and repopulated at
each update and be as fast as anything else in the meantimes. Whatever
the method, the data is already there - seems like adding it again
