Test::Needs allows one to skip test scripts if modules are not available. The
requested modules will be loaded, and optionally have their versions checked.
If the module is missing, the test script will be skipped. Modules that are
found but fail to compile will exit with an error rather than skip.
If used in a subtest, the rest of the subtest will be skipped.
If the "RELEASE_TESTING" environment variable is set, the tests will
fail rather than skip. Subtests will be aborted, but the test script
will continue running after that point.
