Introducing Type::Tiny

Type::Tiny is a tiny (no non-core dependencies) framework for building type constraints. OK, probably not that exciting. How can I grab your attention?

 WithMooseAndTypeTiny 10778/s                  34%                   --

The benchmark script is shown later so you can check I'm not doing anything hideously unfair to disadvantage Moose.

How can I hold your attention?
