Consider yourself clobbered. Now, I'm the first to admit that the output of Data::Dumper is harder to read that YAML, but considering that most of the time I see programmers reach for Data::Dumper instead of any of the alternatives, I'm not inclined to agree on the "pretty wide consensus".

    You hit me in the ear!

    Sorry, bad choice of words. I meant "growing consensus" and I meant it among those who don't cargo cult. I've never even used Data::Dump but I've seen Data::Dumper mentioned quite pejoratively in comparisons lately. Data::Dumper's defaults are terrible (::Terse and ::Indent are usually necessary/desired) and using eval to bring the code back to life is, using this chestnut again so soon, "considered harmful."
