Floating point? Never! :-) I should add that.
Lists aren't included (which is something yaml does with different 
syntax), but the preftree approach would be to just have a number of 
elements. The inspiration for preftree was from the Mozilla prefs, where 
for example a list of mail accounts would contain account1, account2 etc.
What we need to do is make it easier to iterate over elements at a point 
in a tree.
