I want to do something similar to this question, but with a
description environment. That is, I want to add an asterisk (or something) before the label text of some of the items in a
description environment. As in the accepted answer on that question (among others), I want the labels to be vertically aligned with each other, and the asterisks to appear farther left, which is why I don't just write
\item[*label text] on the special items.
I'm already using
enumitem if that's helpful.
