Ok, yeah. I let this sink in yesterday and I think you're right. I was
thinking of other name changes, but YAML.rb has definite advantages.
The primary advantage is this:
y = YAML::Document.new( :UseHeader => true )
Just being able to chop of the '4R' on the above would save some characters,
clear up some meaning, and simplify...
Perforce will stay named 'YamlForRuby', though. I'll probably end up moving
Yaml4R off sourceforge and put it at http://www.whytheluckystiff.net/yaml.rb/.
I'm not sure if I'll continue with anon CVS. Perhaps nightly snapshots.
