In the following commit we we implemented a warning, present in 
perl-5.28, that as of perl-5.30 dump() would no longer be supported 
unless it was invoked as CORE::dump().

     Deprecation of an unqualified dump() to mean CORE::dump().

     This will no longer be allowed in 5.30.

In preparation for perl-5.30, we need to fatalize the unqualified use of 
dump() and adjusts tests and documentation accordingly.

Thank you very much.
