API function added without tests
Message ID:
The message in this commit states that it adds a new API function.  I 
would have expected some tests to be added for a new function, but don't 
see any.  Can they be added?

commit 658db62260a2a680132cf1a36a3788db37a6941b

     add sv_string_from_errnum()

This is a new API function, partly substituting for the my_strerror() 
that was recently removed from the public API, but also incorporating 
the decoding work that's done for $!.

Thank you very much.
Jim Keenan
