    Section: Removing Parentheses

    To remove the parentheses from enclosure descriptions, perhaps in favour of commas, simply override the relevant rules:

        Rule for opening an enclosure description: say ", ".
        Rule for closing an enclosure description: rule succeeds.

    "Rule succeeds" prevents the remaining (default) rule for closing an enclosure description from being executed.

    This would result in enclosure descriptions such as "Bedroom, on the chair" or "Bedroom, on your chair, on the table".

    One might equally do the following:

        The open enclosure descriptions with a parenthesis rule is not listed in any rulebook.
        The close enclosure descriptions with a parenthesis rule is not listed in any rulebook.

    Though since it is the first of these which prints a space between enclosure descriptions, and after the room name, this would result in enclosure descriptions such as "Bedroomon the chairon the table". It is likely that some rule for opening enclosure descriptions is desirable, even if it only prints a space:

        The open enclosure descriptions with a parenthesis rule is not listed in any rulebook.
        The close enclosure descriptions with a parenthesis rule is not listed in any rulebook.
        Rule for opening an enclosure description: say " ".
