I have a question for you...

When is somebody going to write a lyx2yaml script?

Another question: Instead of having LyX's native format being
human-opaque XML, why not make it YAML, the ultimate in human
readability and writeability?


As I understand, the LyX project's preferred scripting language is
Python, and PyYaml is an excellent YAML parser and emitter.

I don't have time or knowledge to write a lyx2yaml script, but if
somebody else takes the captain's chair, I'll for sure help.
