These explicit commands work on a single datum at a time, though.
Sometimes you want to look at more items at the same time in more
detail. What about a key (e.g. +) to reprint the items with an
increased maximum length? You can press the key multiple times
for increasing the detail level as desired. The same key can
also apply to the inspector buffer.
