Spoons original distribution came bundled with a YAML implementation, which I'm currently extracting into a separate distribution. I figured that the default loader should simply be a plain text file with no frills. After that YAML, Ini, XML (as per Class::Phrasebook) and DBI loaders can be installed as plugins as and when required. After creating working loaders, I then need to look at adding the debugging features, again as per Class::Phrasebook. I suspect this will probably not reach CPAN, at least not as Class::Phrasebook, but it will be available online should anyone be interested.
