So, over the past year I've repeatedly had the urge to use TOML for this or
that configuration file. But then inevitably I imagine the dependency
graph and realize that YAML is definitely already required by whatever it
is I'm working on, and then I question who am I to foist a new requirement
on whoever may be downstream, etc, etc. And before I've even started I
have forced myself to opt out of TOML out of pragmatism.
However the status quo of using YAML is also terrible too. Every time I
set up a new configuration file that includes settings for Norway I am
reminded of this. But it seems we are stuck in an inescapable local
maximum; just look at the pathetic install stats at
Does anyone else find this frustrating? Should we start an angry
revolution? Or a passive aggressive one? Am I crazy?
