Please allow me to remedy that now.)

 as yaml config files could at least be hand edited/written,

So can json files as Jason indicated. You'll still have the very same
user-settings.conf file. It will still be text. You can still continue
to hand edit/write it -- as long as you do so correctly. ;-) It will
merely be in a slightly different format than before.

Basically, we needed to make our upstream Release Team happy by
following their rules. But we always attempt to do these sorts of things
in ways which will be the least disruptive both to end users and to
downstream distros. :-)

If you want a visual before-and-after comparison, you may find this
commit (the associated changes I made to the stored test harness config
files) helpful:

Hope this clarifies things sufficiently. If not, you know where to find
me. :-)

Take care.
