When not specifying which components to use with the using syntax, components that cannot be consumed (because they are k...

The oiled leather thigh holsters, which would previously hold any tool, have been revamped because many tools are unrealistically large. They now look like this:

"It could sheathe a jewellers tool, drawknife, brush, file, graving tool, screwdriver or gemcutting tool."

If you previously had other things in them, and they're still there, that's normal - you just won't be able to replace them there after removing them.

I've updated, and fixed some bugs, in keep:

- The keep flag will no longer be removed when a kept item leaves your inventory accidentally.

- The keep flag now only applies to the player who set it (always).

- The put command now respects keep. You cannot put kept items into containers that you're not carrying.

- You will not fumble kept items unless there is no other choice.
