Description

Hi.

I have nice idea and implementation example to improve the vision of models list on the administrative interface. My last django project has a lot of models and users don't remember what models do. I make simple description for each model. That is how it looks:

The code resides on http://djbook.ru/examples/11/ and has small peace of comments in russian, but I sure that the code itself is understable very well.

I will like to see such ability in the following releases. Thank you.

My concern is to use standard python __doc__ feature, or an additional 'description' field of the django-style model Meta class instead of the 'description' member of the model class, just because the model class itself may contain 'description' field as a part of the persistent storage model.

There isn't a lot of demand for this feature, and it can be achieved with a custom template.
