Tested this out, and find that the descriptions from the included and
including pages are combined in one meta-tag, although there is a line-break
between them -- that linebreak would be ignored by bots, right?

I'm going to make it a practice to keep (:description ...:) at the foot of
every page, just above (:title ...:) -- that way, I'll always know what to
do to use or avoid using the behavior that combines tags.
