This is something I still want to fix within Devel::Cover if I can.  But
for now, the best workaround that I have is to put everything into a sub
and call that:

    sub _dancer {

    get '/' => sub {

    get '/login' => sub {



Not ideal, but perhaps the best of a bad bunch.  Unless anyone has a
better suggestion?
