womtool validate --inputs foo.yaml fails (expecting json)

myourshawmyourshaw University of ColoradoMember ✭✭

This is a followup to "Workflow input processing failed" WDL v1 - Comments in input JSON wherein it was recommended to use a yaml file to avoid the problem of newer versions of Cromwell rejecting "comment"-type keys in the inputs.json file. Cromwell (44) is OK with yaml input, but womtools validate --inputs seems to accept only a json file, and with yaml fails with something like:

Unexpected character '-' at input index 1 (line 1, position 2), expected DIGIT:
---
 ^

Is there a way to get womtools to accept yaml input? If not, consider this a feature request.
