I don't think this is appropriate for a sdesc. This is the *only* text
that a user will ever see about the package when using setup.exe so it
should be as concise and descriptive as possible. I very much doubt
that "Frank, Ian & Glenn's Letters" is how you would concisely describe
the figlet program to someone that has never heard of it before.
The current sdesc is simply "Program to create large letters on text
screen" and I think this is much better. This is not a place to get
cutesy with acronyms.
