I've written a few parsers in my life, all manual - I don't have much experience with flex/yacc kind of things, that's why I asked if anybody known a good framework for such stuff.
The wiki has a decent listing of parsing libraries, though I don't know how up to date it is.
FWIW, I like the idea of a library for a safe subset of YAML. Paul is right that it should live on the cheeseshop a while. You might see if anyone on python-list has interest in collaborating with you on such a project.
p.s. I appreciate your follow-up email. Your original proposal was long and hard to follow. The idea I like here was lost in there, as evidenced by some of the responses you got. It was much clearer today. Also, those links you gave are nice concrete examples. I'd recommend sticking to that formula of a brief, focused proposal supported by examples. The examples help to mitigate the communication breakdowns.
