I feel like you didn't internalize my arguments. Calling out to a shell script for more complex things is exactly what I was doing.

Needing to internalize all of yaml in order to use it was kind of my point. YAML looks easy and human friendly, but rather than learn a few things which are common across most any language (strings use quotes and thus quotes need escaped, and thus escaping needs escape). No you need a to know a very special language. So why not instead internalize a simple, but annoying language?
