> This is an entire rewrite of the XML storage configuration to YAML, inspired by the discussion
in CASSANDRA-671.
> DatabaseDescriptor now parses conf/cassandra.yaml. It behaves the same way as before,
but instead of dealing with an XML parse tree, a yaml parser is now created that associates
a custom Java class (Config) with the entire config. In addition, keyspace and column family
YAML entries are deserialized to new Keyspace and ColumnFamily instances, respectively.
> This was implemented using SnakeYaml (http://code.google.com/p/snakeyaml/).
> There are numerous benefits to this new approach: 1) a complete shifting away from an
outdated, verbose data format 2) a cleaner, less bulky, human-readable config 3) significantly
less code 4) simplicity of obtaining default values 5) trivial to update the keyspace and
column family schemas
> Attached along with the patch are the replacement configurations for conf/cassandra.xml
and test/conf/cassandra.xml, to emphasize the benefits of the transition, should the community
approve of it. I included one version with comments and one without.
