12 libyaml's the compliant one, but it only supports the bottom part of the
13 stack. You'd still have to write the composer and constructor by hand,
14 which is a lot of work. It also can't read many documents generated by
15 Syck because it's strictly specification compliant and rejects invalid
16 input.
18 Yaml looks nicer than XML on the surface, but unfortunately it's still a
19 pain in the ass to handle...
