I can see how such a library might be extremely usefull - however, we already
have something that fills that niche quite well: YAML.
I think James is on the right track with YAML::Lite and using a
frozen/branched version of YAML 0.39 until this whole thing blows over.
I don't think it'd be a great idea to go scrambling in some new direction, due
to a temporary setback.
YAML is good.
