I like your suggestions, Troy. :)
Regarding #1, this would be great for PS! I would hope to have this in v1.4.0, which I'm hoping to have out in the next month or so?
#2 is more interesting. As long as it was rather short (a couple of lines?), it should be easy to incorporate into PS & make prominent. Longer, and it wouldn't be displayed to users unless they requested the info by hitting a button or something?
Plaintext seems like it would cause the least number of issues, given the feedback of other people? but if it were to be longer, perhaps html would be more appropriate?
