       Test2::API::Stack - Object to manage a stack of Test2::Hub instances.


       The internals of this package are subject to change at any time! The
       public methods provided will not change in backwards incompatible ways,
       but the underlying implementation details might. Do not break
       encapsulation here!


       This module is used to represent and manage a stack of Test2::Hub
       objects. Hubs are usually in a stack so that you can push a new hub
       into place that can intercept and handle events differently than the
       primary hub.


           my $stack = Test2::API::Stack->new;
           my $hub = $stack->top;


       $stack = Test2::API::Stack->new()
           This will create a new empty stack instance. All arguments are

       $hub = $stack->new_hub()
       $hub = $stack->new_hub(%params)
       $hub = $stack->new_hub(%params, class => $class)
           This will generate a new hub and push it to the top of the stack.
           Optionally you can provide arguments that will be passed into the
           constructor for the Test2::Hub object.

           If you specify the "'class' => $class" argument, the new hub will
           be an instance of the specified class.

           Unless your parameters specify 'formatter' or 'ipc' arguments, the
           formatter and IPC instance will be inherited from the current top
           hub. You can set the parameters to "undef" to avoid having a
           formatter or IPC instance.

           If there is no top hub, and you do not ask to leave IPC and
           formatter undef, then a new formatter will be created, and the IPC
           instance from Test2::API will be used.

       $hub = $stack->top()
           This will return the top hub from the stack. If there is no top hub
           yet this will create it.

       $hub = $stack->peek()
           This will return the top hub from the stack. If there is no top hub
           yet this will return undef.

           This will call "$hub->cull" on all hubs in the stack.

       @hubs = $stack->all
           This will return all the hubs in the stack as a list.

           This will completely remove all hubs from the stack. Normally you
           do not want to do this, but there are a few valid reasons for it.

           This will push the new hub onto the stack.

           This will pop a hub from the stack, if the hub at the top of the
           stack does not match the hub you expect (passed in as an argument)
           it will throw an exception.
