Thanks, I totally forgot about non-domain experts when writing that
description. What do you think about this revised version?

    (synopsis "Semiautomatic return oriented programming")
     "This tool lets you search for @acronym{ROP, Return Oriented Programming}
gadgets in binaries. Some facilities are included for automatically generating
chains of gadgets to execute system calls.")

Also, is the file in which I've put this package right? I choose that
place because that's where radare2 is, and it has a relatively
similar purpose. However, radare2 is a loose fit already, so ROPgadget
would be two steps removed from the original purpose of the file...
