Which I calculate is 20.94 hours

Approximately 20 tickets were work on, and 8 patches were applied

The change in #74798 added an XS implementation of Data::Dumper for
the Useqq case.  This change broke two CPAN modules.

autobox::dump depends on the exact output Dumper under Useqq, which
was (mostly) reasonable, so I adjusted the output so they match.

Project::Easy however fiddles with the implementation, globally
replacing Data::Dumper::qquote (no local).  Since the XS
implementation doesn't use the pure perl qquote() this caused tests to
fail.  I've opened [cpan #87171] to let the author know about the
change.
