I would recommend against turning descriptions into lists of commands
just for the sake of package search (we should instead have another
mechanism to determine which package provides a given command), but
listing key commands is useful for a package like this one.

Would you like to propose a patch?

The description for the psmisc package would be more helpful if it
listed the utilities that it included.  As it is I do not know what I
will get after installing.

An example of a description that is more helpful is procps.
