Description (last modified by Reportage)

Since the support for optional metainfo is already in the code, and is displayed when torrents have been generated by 3rd party clients (and enabled), adding the option to embed a comment and the creation date when creating a torrent would be helpful.

To add a comment, an additional text field under the create torrent field; to embed the creation date, an option in the configuration section.

Creation date is already stored, and displayed, for locally-created torrents.
Comment field is doable, but worth the added complexity in the create torrent form? I don't think so but don't feel that strongly about it.

The attached image indicates a mockup of a simple, unfussy implementation of the UI for adding an embedded comment to the torrent. For most purposes, it should be big enough, otherwise, cutting and pasting a larger comment should keep most happy.

For the tooltip, something along the lines of "Add an optional comment or description to be embedded in the torrent file".
