TAP historical versions
Message ID:
We're in the process of adding a version number to TAP (ya know, ok 1, not
ok 2) and I'm trying to figure out what version number we're actually at.
I've been tracing back through the features added since Perl 1 but things
are a bit jumbled.

I'd like to pick brains for what you remember about what features were added
and in what order.  The features I currently have (in no particular order) are:

    * TAP as understood by Perl 1.0's t/TEST (this is version 1)
    * Ignoring blank lines
    * Allowing comments
    * Ignoring non-TAP lines
    * Adding the todo in-header syntax (1..10 todo 2,3)
    * Adding the header-at-end syntax (aka "no_plan").
    * Adding the TODO directive
    * Adding the SKIP directive
    * Adding the skip all header (1..0)
    * Allowing a skip all reason
    * Adding a SKIP directive reason
    * Adding a TODO directive reason
