This requires network protocol change, and it makes no sense to provide it via optional capability to frozen S2_5.

The size of the description string is already MAX_LEN_PACKET (4k -- in practice slightly less since it's sharing the RULESET_CONTROL packet with other stuff.

Perhaps a series of packets containing individual strings that are part of the ruleset description, with each string (paragraph) limited to MAX_LEN_PACKET?

As (once again) mentioned in patch #3024:

> There's also "About Ruleset", but size is limited.

Problem here is in network protocol used to transfer ruleset description to client. We really should rework that to allow good descriptions. Patches welcome.
