Containers again: listing contents in the object list

The latest query in my one man battle with containers: is there a way in the current system to list the contents of the container in the object list? eg You see: a cupboard (in which there is an olive, a dressing gown and a Barbara Cartland Novel) [to name the three naturally complementary objects that ought to appear together in any worthy game]?

At the moment, I have to LOOK INSIDE before I am told what is in the container.
