Re: [pcgen] Re: [Tom] Abilities follow up
- Yes, the docs would support that, as does my memory of the discussion. TYPE was a pull in filter if memory serves... (My apologies to both Tom and Tir) When I replied I had thought it was Tom, so I automatically thought the TYPE was correct and had somehow been changed.
ABILITYCAT and CAT being the same name makes a "superset" or 'Parent set'.

I'm not entirely sure of that. It's weird to have something without a
TYPE (subset == superset), but not invalid.
I believe setting the name to equal the CATEGORY is what defines a
"parent" or "universalset" (depending on your terminology)
