How often do you hand-edit array data?

Even JSON was found too cumbersome for efficient human reading/writing, 
so YAML came along to fill that gap where human editing of raw data is a 
priority.

One of the great things about computing in the 21st century is that we 
have so many options to choose from, selecting the best fit for the 
balance of human editing vs runtime efficiency as a given project requires.
