Where in the system appears the string in "Description" of the FileTypes Preferences?

I think nowhere.

IIRC, a type´s description (which could be long) isn´t shown
anywhere else besides in FileTypes. (But it is available to
other applications separately, via the BMimeType API, IIRC.)


~/config/settings/beos_mime/application ->listattr x-vnd.be-bookmark
File: x-vnd.be-bookmark
  Type         Size                 Name
-----------  ---------  -------------------------------
MIME String         31  "BEOS:TYPE"
       Text         30  "META:TYPE"
     'MSDC'          9  "META:S:DESC"
     'MLDC'         24  "META:L:DESC"
     'MSIG'         26  "META:PREF_APP"
     'MSGG'        462  "META:ATTR_INFO"
     'VICN'        528  "META:ICON"

1110 bytes total in attributes.

META:L:DESC should be the long version.

Thanks everyone. And thanks for playing, BGA. :)
