When I started to look at tonight, I was 
shocked, shocked to discover that the vast majority of tests in the most 
important test file for Data-Dumper lacked descriptions (names).

This file uses a custom TEST() subroutine which essentially runs over 
each input three times, printing out the description only in the first 
of each block of three.  So the descriptions will be aimed principally 
at letting someone debugging a problem know where in the test file she is.

Add descriptions to the invocations of TEST() currently lacking them.

I'll work on this in a branch.

The 'perl -V' output attached is irrelevant; I'm working against blead 
at 36b1c95c174efe412ba8229cef144b7351e5af27.

Thank you very much.
