The strict dependency requires the same perl version which was used
at the yast2-core build time, this is safer. Using >= could cause problems when
new perl is not binary compatible with old version.

yast2-core has files in /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0. I suppose
perl 5.10.1 does not load files from the 5.10.0 directory.

Um, in which version? Here it is OK (I'm running Factory + Yast:HEAD):

# rpm -ql yast2-core | grep perl
# rpm -q yast2-core perl

Anyway, as Gerald has written, if yast2-core has files in 5.10.0
directory is should require perl = 5.10.0 so the problem should
not happen (unless you manually break the package dependency).

The problem was in yast2-perl-bindings package, but has been fixed already.
