remembering the time we decided to simplify mediawiki's api output by replacing the yaml generator with the json generator, as all valid json is valid yaml

@mansr there was just all sorts of security problems in the yaml library we had at the time and we decided to yank it entirely

@brion Yes, but surely _something_ broke when you did that.

@brion The way you phrased it made me think something had gone horribly wrong.

@mansr just somebody deciding one day to support yaml, which was very annoying


@brion @mansr i am happy to file yaml in general in the category of things which have gone horribly wrong
