<feature_request>

Data::Dumper constructs a string on memory to output. It would be nice
to have a function dumping the structure directly to stdout (or stderr)
for cases when the structure is so big that creating the Dumper of it
makes perl complain of out-of-memory.

Of course that can have problems for circular structures, and so on... but
the function cas ask for us to swear that the structure is all right :-)

</feature_request>

Best regards,
 Alberto
