Using Yaml format in Fixtures

By default, loaddata command only looks for xml and json fixtures.
Documentation at also mentions YAML format as being supported out of the box.

That is not true and misleading. At least on windows, PyYaml ( must be installed on system for Django to look for .yaml files in fixture directories.

I think that should be documented, because new users can waste lots of hours wondering why their fixtures do not get loaded.

Also, using loaddata with --verbosity=2 can help diagnosing the problem. Mentioning this on documentation page could be a good step.
