Summary0001198: WI 22.12 unclear about saving multiple tables to file.
DescriptionThe process for writing a table to an external file assumes that only one table will be written to each file: if the game wants to save more than one table, multiple files should be used. But the documentation does not specifically mention this anywhere. Attempting to save and then retrieve multiple tables from the same file leads to confusing runtime errors.

(With a CS background, it might be natural to assume that 'write' implies 'overwrite'; but my expectation was that overwriting would only happen if the table being written was already present in the file.)

A good point; I've made the documentation clearer.
