One thing that drives me crazy about YAML is my desire to have variable
references within my config file.  I my short reading up on YAML, it
didn't seem
to support that.  Otherwise,  I feel the same way phillip does.

A common problem I run into is when I specify paths to things that my
app might need to
get it's hands on.  I wind up having a few configuration items repeating
the same base

It's my hope that I'm using Config::YAML incorrectly and that it does
indeed support
variable referencing.  Any luck of that?
