That sounds like a good idea. Anyone has an idea for a real-
world data structure we could use? Something with many types,
references, cycles, etc.? Artificial examples don't have the
same explanatory powers as real-world based ones.
Also, it may also make sense to provide equivalent Perl code
for at least some of the samples in the YAML spec itself (e.g.,
the references samples). That's all part of the "polish" task,
which awaits the stabilization of the spec itself.
