There is a "branch description" config entry that you can edit with "git
branch --edit-description" (or by simply tweaking the config file
yourself). However, it is currently only used by git-request-pull when
generating the request.

I think it makes sense to be able to show it as part of "git branch",
but the verbose branch listing there is a bit of a mess. Doing it
cleanly would probably involve refactoring the branch-display code to
allow users to specify more flexible formats.

Ramkumar (cc'd) was looking into that refactoring a while back, but I
did not follow it closely (it looks like some of the underlying
for-each-ref refactoring is on the 'next' branch?).
