Well since it's been a while with no reply on this, this evening I went
ahead and made the changes I proposed back in January in my own fork. This
definitely seems to have solved the YAML loader problem you were originally
asking about, but Linux builds are still failing, now for reasons that seem
to just have to do with mismatched distro-specific dependencies. Dunno if
you have an easy way to get these distros and dependencies back into a
state that makes sense or if I need to dig more into manually fixing all
that, though.

Anyway, I made the PR against jtojnar's fork that's the basis for the
original PR you were asking about. My PR is here:

That fork seems not to have the CI actions enabled, but mine does and you
can see the build logs here:
