no direct template access

extracts short description text from a named template in the named article when that template is found in article
wiki source

requires three arguments:
	frame: frame object required to preprocess template_name
	article_title: the name of the article to inspect - correct spelling and captialization is required
	template_names_tbl: a single template name (a string) or a table of one or more template names all without
		namespace to be inspected - correct spelling and captialization is required

returns two values:
	on success, returns the short description text and true
	on failure, returns error message and nil

no direct template access

extracts short description text from {{short description}} template when that template is found in article wiki
source; searches for both the long name (short description) and the short-name redirect (SHD); if both are present
long name controls; if multiples of the same name are present, the first-found controls.

requires one argument: article_title is the name of the article to be inspected

on success, returns the short description text; error message else

template entry point:
	{{#invoke:extract short description|extract_short_description}}

search for and return text that is used by the {{short description}} template.  {{Short description}}, also {{SHD}}
may be located in article wikisource or embedded in a template (commonly an infobox template).  When neither of
|template= and {{{2|}}} are set, this code will look in the article wiki source; when set, this code look inside the
named template.

This template entry takes two parameters:
	{{{1}}} or |article=: required; name of wiki article from which to extract the short description
	{{{2}}} or |template=; optional; name of template that holds the {{short description}} template

on success, returns the short description text; error message else
