module Time::Format::YAML_DATE


Even though the standard library has Time parsers given a fixed format, the format in YAML, http://yaml.org/type/timestamp.html, can consist of just the date part, and following it any number of spaces, or 't', or 'T' can follow, with many optional components. So, we implement this in a more efficient way to avoid parsing the same string with many possible formats (there's also no way to specify any number of spaces with Time::Format, or an "or" like in a Regex).

As an additional note, Ruby's Psych YAML parser also implements a custom time parser, probably for this same reason.
