Like Mateusz suggested, I opened a Trac ticket, and added a quickly
Gimp'd impression of what I'm talking about (spoiler, the types don't
necessarily match their definitions as Gimp typechecking is still WIP).


I too think truncation is the way to go for long definitions, because I
don't think we should alter the Index page layout (by having multiline
type cells for example).
