01. Update the YAML version declaration
The version declaration for YAML has not been "--- #YAML:1.0" for a long
time, update it to the current YAML 1.1 equivalent.
I'm opposed on practical grounds, as we want Meta parsing in the Perl
core (Parse::CPAN::Meta) and attempts to put a full featured YAML
parser in core have been rejected.
I think for any YAML-based META files, we need to limit ourselves to the
subset of YAML that is supported by Parse::CPAN::Meta for these reasons.
But as I said, I think discussion of output format is a broader one
that needs to consider all options holistically.
Cool. I just learned a new word!
