PPI::Statement::Break - Statements which break out of normal statement flow

goto FOO;
next if condition();
return $foo;

isa PPI::Statement
    isa PPI::Node
        isa PPI::Element

"PPI::Statement::Break" is intended to represent statements that break out of the normal statement flow control. This covers the basic types 'redo', 'goto', 'next', 'last' and 'return'.

"PPI::Statement::Break" has no additional methods beyond the default ones provided by PPI::Statement, PPI::Node and PPI::Element.

However, it is expected to gain methods for identifying the line to break to, or the structure to break out of.

- Add the methods to identify the break target

- Add some proper unit testing
