These methods are just shorthand for:
$output->write(out => @args); $output->write(err => @args);
$tap->diag( @text );
@text as a TAP comment to the error handle.
Like diag but goes to the output handle.
my $use_numbers = $formatter->use_numbers; $formatter->use_numbers($use_numbers);
Get/sets if the TAP output should include the test number. Defaults to true. NOTE: the counter will still incrememnt this only toggles if the number should be used in the display.

my $comment = $self->comment(@message);
Will turn the given @message into a TAP comment.
