I misread this as an even more interesting suggestion — that the scroll description should mention the actual items that will be generated. ("When read, it conjures forth The Flail 'Totila'.")

When a monster has picked up/destroyed an unknown object on an unknown-but-Detected space, the red star should (IMO) disappear if you cast Detection again: currently it doesn't.

Wait, no, it reappears in the dungeon eventually. Not in the store. It's an extension of your home only in the same sense that the whole dungeon is an extension of your home … full of wonderful...

three bad suggestions for V

Speaking of bailing out, I just bailed out of quaffing an unidentified potion at the "Direction?" prompt and didn't learn its identification. I think either I should learn that it's !Dragon's Breath...

In my 4.1.0 savefile the Black Market is selling a Ring of Strength which is not fully identified — pval is not shown, and 'x' tells me "You do not know the full extent of this item's powers". There...
