Summary 0005706: Existing vault syntax crashes when trying to specify spells for a randbook sold in a shop
Description Vault syntax for defining a shop uses | to separate items.
Vault syntax for defining a randbook's spells uses | to separate spells.
If you make a vault with a shop, and want that shop to sell your own book with two or more specific spells, the map parser will crash on the double meaning of |. For example, this will crash:

KFEAT: a = any shop ; any book | randbook spells:slow|magic_dart

But with only one spell it's fine, since there's no | in the spell list:

KFEAT: a = any shop ; any book | randbook spells:slow

Well I finally got around to patching this. The simplest solution was simply to change the symbol used to separate spells in a spellbook definition. The symbol is no longer "|". It is now "&". This compiled fine, ran fine, and successfully generated a test shop with a specially-defined randbook inside.

I promise to abuse this new vault-writing power as soon as possible.
