Sounds sensible.

It might make sense to forward these upstream before they release.

I have commited your changes to


as well as an update of d/changelog which I would have expected to see
considering your changes (please pull).

If you consider the current status of yaml-cpp as final I'd upload
to experimental (which is harmless on one side and fits the current
Jessie freeze policy on the other side).  So just ping me and I'll
upload if this simplifies your work on OpenSurgSim.  I just want to
remove any stumbling stone in your MoM work.
