Send goal waypoints to /FollowWaypoints as a yaml file?

Is it possible to pass waypoints to the /FollowWaypoints action server as a .yaml file when executing from the command line instead of putting it on the command line in yaml format? For example, I might want to conduct some testing and it's convenient to use the command line with a set of standard waypoints, without having to worry about all the bracketing required for command line entry or shell scripts? I know you can set parameters this way, but can you do the same thing with a goal you're sending to an action server?

It doesn't take a .yaml, but have you seen axclient?

you need to write a node to read to yaml send the waypoints. There were several packages that do that in ros1
