I agree, is a nice addition.  I think that the description should be a
short multiline to make it look like a description. Just three lines,
or two as Ignacio said.  His current implementation shows one line and
ellipsizes in the middle.  I think it should ellipsize in the end,
because is a longer text.  And don't let the description enlarge the
width of the palette.
