I have used HTML::FormFu a lot, but I have never used YAML because I also 
don't like YAML.

HTML::FormFu can accept the forms to be created with any config type 
supported by Config::Any, like the Apache-style config format 
(Config::General), INI files, JSON, YAML or even a simple Perl hash.

I prefer to use the Apache style configuration.
The configuration style has nothing to do with HTML::FormFu.

In my opinion HTML::FormFu is better than HTML::FormHandler because it 
doesn't require writing as much Perl code, and it better separates the Perl 
code and the HTML code.
