CakePHP 2 Yahoo Placefinder Datasource

tldr: Fork it on GitHub.

Need the coordinates of a location anywhere on Earth? Or how about the place name of any coordinates you provide? The Yahoo PlaceFinder datasource provides a familiar CakePhp interface for interacting with the Yahoo API.

Typical usage looks like this:

$results = $this->Location->find('all', array(
  'conditions' => array(
    'location' => $this->request->data['Location']['location'],
    'flags'    => 'JE',
    'gflags'   => 'ACR',

It's worth reading Yahoo's docs for the request parameters.
