Precursor to YAML

As I continue to migrate Mephisto posts to Jekyll, I stumbled upon this Perl script I wrote to help me move blog entries from the venerable Movable Type blog engine (see Wikipedia entry) to Mephisto.

I was struck by how much the Movable Type Import/Export format resembles YAML (although the way MT handles multiline strings is radically different.)
