    Section: Overview

    Provides a system for examining plural objects.

    Multiple examining is useful for when we have groups of identical objects which are naturally considered as a group, like a pad of nine buttons, or a bag of coins. The way it's implemented here is to take a collection of objects specified by the player and deduce the most specific kind to which they all belong. If you want more flexible behaviour - but possibily requiring more specification - see "The Left Hand of Autumn" in the I7 Recipe Book.
