Sorry, I don't see where's the problem with the primitive types, YAML doesn't
need the class name for these types. Strings, arrays, lists, maps and
primitive types (int, float, double, char) are native YAML types and are
serialized "as is".

That's a good option, but it needs class_name_optional_type. Do you think my
patch looks good? If you think class_name_optional_type should be
implemented, I'll provide a patch for input archives as well.
