 Hi @fcrossen, welcome to Trac!

 Sorry it took so long for somebody to get back to you.

 I can't see making the plugin description filterable in this way mainly
 because there's no precedent for it. The same goes for themes, for that
 matter. The description is sort of one thing the plugin or theme author
 has very specifically crafted in the readme and it's not something I think
 we should make filterable.

 Best suggestion would be to add a link to the plugin row meta via the
 plugin_row_meta] filter that could conceivably lead a visitor to
 information you're wanting to convey.
