I almost want to say this is already possible, but I'm pretty sure it's things like plates and platters that I'm thinking of. Currently you can do
>look in plate on table
(or something like that) And see the contents of the plate object. It would be nice to see it extended to other containers. It would help prevent the "pull one bag off a table, find the entire room becomes unusable due to weight code" dilemma every clan faces.
