[ic] Multiple fields for DescriptionField?

Hi all,

I'm wondering if there's some way to assign multiple fields for the 
DescriptionField config directive. I have a catalog that uses various 
fields to assemble product descriptions and I'm looking into ways to 
make the code that does so more efficient.

For example, rather than [item-description] returning the value of an 
item's description field, I'd want it to return the values of fields 
desc01, desc03 and desc04 separated by spaces.

I've tried a simple test with an Autoload sub that changes the 
DescriptionField and tried a comma-separated set of two field names 
which didn't work.

I suppose I could write a UserTag that would override [item-description] 
(or [PREFIX-description], I suppose), but would like to know if there 
may be a better way of accomplishing this.

The catalog is running in IC 5.4.2 and uses a MySQL database. (Yes, I 
know I need to upgrade IC).
