[Omaha.pm] Test::More is_deeply()

Wow. is_deeply() is pretty slick.
>From the POD:
is_deeply( $this, $that, $test_name );
Similar to is(), except that if $this and $that are
hash or array references, it does a deep comparison
walking each data structure to see if they are equiva-
lent. If the two structures are different, it will
display the place where they start differing.
Over in my test script:
ok(@cros = $f->get_cro_resnos, "get_cro_resnos()");
my @should_be = qw(1004427653 1080835469 1004678589 1004763984);
is_deeply(\@cros, \@should_be, " is what we expected");
I've intentionally screwed up the second element of the array, so is_deeply() magically tells me exactly where things went amiss:
ok 4 - get_cro_resnos()
not ok 5 - is what we expected
# Failed test (Inbound.t at line 14)
# Structures begin differing at:
# $got-> = '1090835469'
# $expected-> = '1080835469'
