that is not correct.
fou4s can do without descriptions, but by default uses them,
and much effort has gone into it to make it correctly parse them.

however, it normally does not _delete_ descriptions locally once they
have been downloaded. If one uses some rsync server url, one could
specify --delete in the rsyncopts in updatePackageList, though.
Probably the fou4s cache has to be rebuilt, then, too.

the trouble is not with fou4s, nor with yast, but with broken packages.
anyways, no real harm done (this time).
