As I have hinted at a couple of times over the past month, I have been 
adding tests to dist/Data-Dumper in the hope of boosting its code 
coverage.  There have also been places where, based on coverage 
analysis, I've been able to make some small improvements to the 
pure-Perl implementation.  Steffen Mueller and Ricardo Signes have been 
following the progress of this work.

The code is now ready to be merged.  It's currently sitting in this 
smoke-testing branch:

smoke-me/jkeenan/data-dumper-testing (v5.17.8-48-gce23a39)

I plan to merge this into blead in 5 to 7 days, unless someone has a 
serious objection.  The likely commit message is attached.

Thank you very much.
Jim Keenan
