PyYAML - The next generation YAML parser and emitter for Python.

To install, type 'python install'.

You may build faster LibYAML based parser and emitter with
'python install'.
Then you may use the LibYAML based parser this way:
    >>> yaml.load(stream, Loader=yaml.CLoader)
    >>> yaml.dump(data, Dumper=yaml.CDumper)
