In one of the bug threads it was a possible player solution to take their flowers/seeds/grains/beans out on the ground to access them properly. I also discovered that with, say broad beans, trying to bait a trap with something in a container puts the whole container in.

It would be good and a quick code to apply to the "A"pply command to "R"emove things from a container. Flowers would go back in hand, beans back in hand although liquids like water would be lost.

This would let us also carry a box of berries to put out fistfuls in traps.

 I remember small containers being useful for this situation. Pour some into a cup to set as bait.
To help is it's own reward.

Here’s related Suggestion

Which also would enable various items put in and taken out off containers.

That would be good and reasonable addition. Those containers are clumsy to handle, within the code as well, so it’s a bit of a headache to add actually but I’ll be checking out possibilities in regards to this. The thing is, when stuff is put in the container it loses its base unit  so fistful of berries becomes just heap of berries. The same goes for the fish, which become just one big heap of fish in a container. That’s why container content removal hasn’t been a thing from the start. The bigger chances to containers are evident at some point, but let’s see if we can come up with simple workaround while waiting for that.

Is the “container control” expected as a part of the planned travois, sled, sleigh, cart, wagon update?

No. These can't be put in the same basket.
