New description:

 For `verbose_name_plural` option in django Model Meta, django currently
 appends "s" when `verbose_name` is defined and `verbose_name_plural` is
 not.
 However, I think that supporting auto-suffixing for irregular plurals,
 such as `categories`, would be good idea.

 Since there exists countless irregular English plurals, rather than
 including whole dictionary of all English plurals, I thought at first,
 adding support for common rules of forming plurals would be decent idea.
 For instance:

 - adding 'es' support,
 - adding support for nouns ending with 'y'
 - etc.

 I'm not sure about the link above is appropriate reference, but I couldn't
 find much better one.
