Actually, it is being used as a lookup key to well known descriptions.

I believe we should
  - let the "name" correspond to the file name and be a unique key
  - replace "name" with something else, maybe "description-key" in lack 
of a better idea, which is used as this lookup key
  - after this is done, recheck how we do duplicates. There was a 
routine that placed indices on names and descriptions if it found more 
than one, but I might have broken it... :-/
