ZAML is faster YAML serialization for Ruby

The Ruby YAML library is a full stack standard compliant implementation of the YAML protocol, while ZAML is an attempt to produce (effectively) the same output as YAML would have - but much faster and with cleaner code.

ZAML has been benchmarked at up to %1600 faster than YAML: gnomecoder.wordpress.com/2008/09/27/yaml-dump-1600-percent-faster/ groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-core/browse_thread/thread/3e33e31f57e23911/d2eedb7531a12e47?lnk=gst&q=zaml#d2eedb7531a12e47

## Installation
