[chirp_users] Names or notes?

While most/all radios can't store data like this, I think this would be 
a very useful feature for us humans!  I imagine this would only be 
stored locally in chirp and IGNORED when doing uploads into radios.  
Downloads from radios wouldn't have any of this data as they couldn't 
store it in the first place .  Maybe another "comment" file could store 
this detail and then merged and displayed when a new download comes in 
from the radio.  Maybe this would be similar to RT-Systems's "name" or 
"comment" fields:
