  Description     : module to handle subtest failures with exceptions

Test::Abortable provides a simple system for catching some exceptions and
turning them into test events. It provides a means to communicate, via
exceptions, that the running subtest should be aborted, possibly with some
test output, and that the program should then continue.

Test::Abortable exports a subtest() routine that behaves like the one in
Test::More but will handle and recover from abortable exceptions. It also
exports testeval(), which behaves like a block eval that only catches
abortable exceptions.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.
