and rearranges lines, drops all comments, and can't sync when times
match, such as after a git pull.
While thinking about it, it occurred to me that what matters when
working with such hairy XML in YAML is that YAML is a human-readable
form of XML. It's not really necessary to keep a pom.yml -- I only
edit it in TextMate anyways. What's really needed is an XML *editing*
mode... in YAML!
Is it possible to have an XML mode where XML will be converted to YAML
upon loading, then dumped back as XML?
This is currently not possible in an elegant way.
It will be possible in future versions of TM2, based on discussions I
have had with Alan along these lines.
BTW, there is a Maven bundle @ http://github.com/alkemist/Maven.tmbundle
