Agreed, white space sensitivity reminds me of the old school make file. It drives me to crazy. I have to use YAML to JSON online conversation tool every time to verify the correctness. Such a bad idea. And worse, unnecessary flexibility just gives you full of surprises. For example: if you have a key "on", it will surprisingly convert it to true. I have wasted so much time troubleshooting these kinds of weird problems.
