Might we ever imagine a time when YAML is an integral part of Ruby?
That is to say that one wouldn't even need to "require 'yaml'"?

And, too take it a step further, that the YAML library might be
improved and better integrated --perhaps even to go so far as to
create a LINQ style integration?

I ask, because at this point it's rare that I write a program that
doesn't require 'yaml'; from loading config files to dumping debug
output, I find it generally indispensable.
