Just to make this more obvious: this is not a dig on _elisa_, this is a dig
on everything else.

As for elisa, it would be nice if you could make it obvious what the
upstream writes: that online services are not a development priority -- this
player is supposed to be good for offline music, which is exactly what I
want.  The current description makes it seem to be a tool for online stuff
_only_, merely with some respect for privacy.

(Re-added CC to the bug -- wrt my wish for the description.)
