OTOH, problem with the text type is that we have to force the whole string 
into the short description.

So it may be even better to define a new type for that usage that returns 
the full description as a single string, but including blank lines. Not 
sure whether to allow the text to start in the short description, or to 
define that the short description should be left empty.
