I know the JRuby guys spent alot of time on the YAML library.  They
eventually moved to a pure Java implementation for performance reasons.  One
of the major issues was keeping compatibility with how SYCK works on the
Ruby implementation.  I believe there are still some edge cases in JvYAML
that are not fully compatible between JRuby and MRI Ruby.

My question is, has work started on a YAML parser yet? If not, would it be

I think this is a good question.  Do we have any issues basing a new library
off of an existing open source code base?  Are issues like this covered in
the contributor's agreement?
