Right on. Will PyYaml run via IronPython?  If yes, then why not just place  
focus on using PyYaml directly via the DLR?

Good idea.  For runtime reference I've created an IKVM'd version of JRuby

You can reference the code in any C# source file via adding reference to  
the jruby.dll file contained in the above directory and then adding  
whichever from the following list you might need,

using org.jvyamlb;
using org.jvyamlb.events;
using org.jvyamlb.nodes;
using org.jvyamlb.tokens;
using org.jvyamlb.utils;
