JvYAML (https://jvyaml.dev.java.net/) is a pure Java parser and emitter. Would it make sense to integrate it with XStream or is JvYAML useful enough on its own? Just close this issue if you think there is no need for it.
Also see XSTR-166
this fits perfectly into the scope fo XStream 2.0, where we will make some design changes anyway, escpecially to support also non-XML encodings better.
Two years later...
Does XStream currently supports YAML?
