[Chimera-users] suggestion

It would be good to have a session description window that I could type text into.

The typical method is to generate a session file name that is the description, but as the complexity of a session file increases it would helpful to be able to write a couple sentences/paragraph as to the subtle differences it has over a near identical session file.  

It would also allow me to pass messages/instructions in the session file to other users so they can properly implement the session file on their computer (e.g., "be sure to change the directory name and update your density files", "the related command files that work with this session file are ....")

Later on such information could be extracted in mass from closed session files, allowing for searches using database-like queries.
