Shortcuts to var_dump and the like

Inspired by Dave's presentation last night, I stumbled upon a blog posting listing a few development shortcut functions:

* dpr – Shortcut for dprint_r.
* dvr – Similar to dpr, but uses var_dump instead of print_r.
* dpm – Similar to dpr but print_r's a variable as a message using drupal_set_message.
* dvm – Similar to dpm but uses var_dump instead of print_r.
