No. This is wrong. This is too gui-sdl centric. With the new function
we provide a hook which a GUI can use to prepare certain things before
show_city_descriptions starts. That gui-sdl takes this opportunity to
clear its old description in this function doesn't belong in the
common code in the form of the function name.
What's nice about GUI is that you see what you manipulate.
What's bad about GUI is that you can only manipulate what you see.
