Some programmers will find yaml better and easier for them in  
configuring their app.  However, almost everyone else will  find yaml  
obscure and difficult (especially non-programmers, configuring your  
app).  Anyway, the straw that broke the camels back was that I  
realised this morning that it is not possible to put correct YAML in  
POD.  I was feeling motivated, so I took action.
