If "far far easier than XML for the reader" is the bar, then we'll
have to keep "nailgun to the eyeballs" on the list...

That said, I agree with the rest of Cameron's post: for simpler stuff
.ini is darn hard to beat.  If you need nesting/arrays, then I'd
probably pick YAML over JSON.  Making simple changes to an
automatically-generated JSON file by hand is easy enough. But, I find
generating anything remotely complex by hand is far easier in YAML
than it is in JSON.  As usual, YMMV.
