anchor and alias in single line

Issue #41 new
Anonymous created an issue

This:
yaml.load("""
a: &a foo
b: &b *a
""")

File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\yaml\parser.py", line 439, in parse_block_mapping_key
"expected <block end>, but found %r" % token.id, token.start_mark)
ParserError: while parsing a block mapping
in "<string>", line 2, column 1:
a: &a foo
^
expected <block end>, but found '<alias>'
in "<string>", line 3, column 7:
b: &b *a
^

some parsers can cope with that. Shouldn't it be possible in pyyaml too?
