Wow. Dont know how I missed this node. Cool. ++
I dont have much time for a comprehensive response right now but I wanted to
point out that using YAML is a mistake. It is one of the least accurate dumpers out there. Furthermore the author is well aware of the problems in his code and has deliberately chosen to ignore them. (One instance of this is clearly documented in the modules POD, others I have discussed with him by email.) Don't bother with it for any mildly non-trivial data storage as you will eventually get bitten by its failings. If the author took the time he has use to hype the module to make it robust then it might be worth using. However IMO it currently isnt.
my friends call me, usually because I'm late....
