Plugin for editing the description field?

I know this is one of the biggest requests for FB for the last 3 years that I've been using FB, and FB7 doesn't have it:
Ability to edit the description fields of a case? or at least the first description entry.

Is there a plugin available for this or is there one in the works so that I (or my team) doesn't spend cycles on something that FogCreek or someone else is working on?

If not, FogCreek, is there any technical issues that I should be aware of before going forward with this plugin?

This plugin already exists.  It's the custom fields plugin and you just need to add a description field to your bugs.

FB_ScratchOut plugin may also work for you. It does not clear the descriptions you enter but allows you to scratch them out frmo the case.

Michael, that's good to know, I've played with it.  Is there any way to get that custom field to:
  1. bigger or behave like the edit field where it makes itself bigger if needed
  2. if typing 'case 123', it relates itself to case 123
  3. Snippets support

@Y, where do I get that scratchout plugin?  I was looking for it here:

FB_Scratchout is in the All Plugins list.  You can also search for "scratchout" in the search box.
