=head1 NAME

Clownfish::Dumpable - Auto-generate code for "dumpable" classes.

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    my $dumpable = Clownfish::Dumpable->new;
    for my $class ( grep { $_->has_attribute('dumpable') } @classes ) {
        $dumpable->add_dumpables($class);
    }

=head1 DESCRIPTION

If a class declares that it has the attribute "dumpable", but does not declare
either Dump or Load(), Clownfish::Dumpable will attempt to auto-generate
those methods if methods inherited from the parent class do not suffice.

    class Foo::Bar inherits Foo : dumpable {
        Thing *thing;

        public inert incremented Bar*
        new();

        void
        Destroy(Bar *self);
    }

=head1 METHODS

=head2 new

    my $dumpable = Clownfish::Dumpable->new;

=head2 add_dumpables

    $dumpable->add_dumpables($dumpable_class);

Analyze a class with the attribute "dumpable" and add Dump() or Load() methods
as necessary.
