Not sure about having to manually expose each value, %rendertime etc,
its convenient but means we have some list of mappings and users tend
to complain that various values are missing (and you end up having a
kind of small API for accessing values),

also addons wouldnt have their values included in that list by default
so it could get annoying.

Heres a quick hack that evaluates the 'note' field as a Python
expression, so you can put whatever values you like in there.


However its also not ideal since the expressions tend to get very long
(longer then the text entry field).


"Test Obs:%r, AA:%r %r" % (len(context.scene.objects),
context.scene.render.use_antialiasing, app.build_platform)

evaluates to:
Test Obs:4, AA:False b'Linux'
