Summary0000252: Unnamed every turn rule in Plurality
DescriptionIn version 8 of Plurality there is an un-named every turn rule that
changes the pronouns if either of the first or second nouns in the
action are ambiguously plural.

The every turn rule obliterates the effect of the "have the parser
notice" in the code for any command that mentions an ambiguously
plural noun. Worse, because the rule is un-named (and part of a large
section), I can't correct this in my game without modifying the source
of your extension (or dropping ambiguously plural from some things which
causes other grief).

Could you please at least name this rule in a future version.

Perhaps also consider moving the rule to somewhere else in the turn
sequence, before or after the "set pronouns from items from multiple
object lists rule" in the action-processing rulebook seems to work.

Or even consider another solution that doesn't involve a rule (possibly
providing a modified PronounNotice() I6 routine, I haven't looked into
it enough to know).
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Include Plurality by Emily Short.
The Lab is a room.
The bedclothes are here.
The broken locket is in the bedclothes.
The bedclothes are ambiguously plural.  [Without this it works]

Instead of searching the bedclothes:
	say "Among the sheets you find a broken locket.";
	have the parser notice the locket.

Test me with "nouns / search bedclothes / nouns / x it".
