Bug Description

Would it be possible to have a comment/description field for custom columns? This would at least be visible in the custom column properties dialog, and maybe as a tooltip in the edit metadata dialog.

Sometimes the meaning of a custom column is not crystal clear from its name (especially when a library is shared by several people), or there are some specific conventions for the data entered (especially if this column is used in a template).

Changing the component for this bug.
