Description

http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?p=55422

Objects with the following flags: stealth, searching, infravision, speed, blows; sometimes have the flag description added to the name of the object. This is governed by the flag HIDE_TYPE. Many of the items that don't have the HIDE_TYPE flag should have it, since their information is duplicated (Cloak of Stealth <+x stealth>). The mechanic of adding the flag description to the object name is unnecessary, and should be removed (along with the flag HIDE_TYPE).

Incidentally it would also resolve this bug:

    a Ring of the Mouse (+0,-7) <+3 stealth>

Which has both +3 dex and +3 stealth, but with the current display gets confusing.

A quick fix is in [rc169226], but HIDE_TYPE still needs to be removed from list-object-flags.h and from text files.
