That's what the DESCR files are for:

# cat emulators/fuse/DESCR
Fuse is the Free Unix Spectrum Emulator.
* Working 48K/128K/+2/+2A Speccy emulation, running at true Speccy speed on any
computer you're likely to try it on.
* Support for loading from .tzx files.
* Sound (on system supporting the Open Sound System or BSD/Solaris).
* Kempston joystick emulation.
* Emulation of the various printer you could attach to the Spectrum.
* Very basic support for RZX files.

# cat filesystems/fuse/DESCR
With FUSE it is possible to implement a fully functional file system in a
userspace program.  Features include:

* Simple library API
* Simple installation (no need to patch or recompile the kernel)
* Secure implementation
* Userspace - kernel interface is very efficient
* Usable by non privileged users
* Runs on Linux kernels 2.4.X and 2.6.X
* Has proven very stable over time
