I hate to say this, but even as an XEmacs fan, cperl+gemacs is far superior. Recent GNU Emacs has some extra stuff that XEmacs doesn't have, that allows cperl to do some really amazing things. (I have vague memories of the "extra stuff" being multiple syntax transition tables for each character, so you can gracefully handle things like m!!x and other non-standard delimiters. But I could be totally wrong.)

Corion idly wonders if there is a way to produce ordered .yml files. I want to accept YAML for a configuration file format, but I also want to generate (for debugging/start) a sample configuration file from the current configuration.
[Corion]: Ideally, that configuration file would have some order of the keys, but I'm not sure whether/how YAML supports ordered output.
[Corion]: Basically I have this metadata and generating a purposeful example is much better if the output is ordered in the same way the documentation is ordered
