[interchange-docs] Dump complete Vend::Cfg structure

I ran across this page just now in the XML Docs:

The page is instructions about how to write a usertag to dump the
complete Vend::Cfg structure.  It is completely unnecessary and overkill
to do it this way for two reasons...

1.  There is a sub in Interchange for doing data dumps already, it is
::uneval(), and should be used instead of using Data::Dumper as
suggested by this usertag.  It has about 3 or 4 different ways of
creating the dump so it is not necessary to have Data::Dumper in your
Perl build to use it.

2.  There is already a tag in Interchange that does this.  To dump
Vend::Cfg simply do this on a page:

[uneval ref=`$Config`]

You can also do it in the "test code" section of the admin UI under the
Administration tab, creating a page with this tag on it is not even
necessary at all.
