I'm sorry but I disagree on this.

If you want to set all your settings in pure perl, you already can: just 
use the setting keyword in yourapp.pl.

Configuration files, on the other hand, are not meant to be written with 
a programming language. YAML is a very good and well-kown format for 
human-readable configuration files.
