There is nothing difficult with incomplete fans, just need to verify that supports are the same! If you are fine with changes, set to positive review.
New commits:
9acc632  There is no problem subdividing incomplete fans.

Sorry, but I do not understand what you do with the reverse morphism. It seems like you just do nothing in this if not(self.is_complete())
statement. Does the simple fact of calling FanMorphism
magically modify subdivision
?

It better not modify anything in the global namespace!!!
sage: F1 = toric_varieties.P2().fan() sage: F2 = Fan([F1.generating_cone(0)]) sage: F2.common_refinement(F1) ... 1661 if not self.is_complete(): 1662 # Construct the opposite morphism to ensure support equality > 1663 FanMorphism(id, other, self, subdivide=True) ... ValueError: morphism defined by [1 0] [0 1] does not map Rational polyhedral fan in 2d lattice N into the support of Rational polyhedral fan in 2d lattice N!
Without constructing the second morphism, it is not obvious that the support of F1 is not strictly bigger than the support of F2. Yet if the second one can be constructed, its domain fan will be exactly the same subdivision, so no need to use it somehow.
Checking equality of supports of noncomplete fans is tricky, since the support does not have to be convex, so there is no simple object that can model it. (And that's why we don't have fan.support()
method  the best model for the support of a general fan is the fan itself as a polyhedral complex.) Another more transparent option is to check if the first constructed morphism is surjective, but looking at the code I suspect it is more timeconsuming.

Ok, looks good to me. I have just added one more example. If you agree, you can set a positive review.
