Subject: Option to dump all items?

Knowing how many items in a theme is also impossible because given count $count 'meta' will happily oblige supplying $count even when there are less then $count unique items in the theme.

The documentation explains how to do this: https://metacpan.org/pod/Acme::MetaSyntactic#Methods « If $count is 0, the whole list is returned (this may vary depending on the "behaviour" of the theme) in list context, and the size of the list in scalar context. » This also works with the `meta` CLI tool.

Yup, sorry I missed that. Later I read about the count=0 thing. BTW, I've also made an alternative CLI 'metasyn' which defaults to dumping the names, in order (while meta always shuffles the result).
