as the ruby maintainer i can recommend this way if you can't live
with versioned binaries.

The problem with versioned binaries is that it's incovenient to type,
and more importantly that all documentation, examples, snippets,
scripts you can find out there are assuming non-versioned binaries.
It would be nicer to have a way to work with Ruby which works out of
the box for everybody.

I really hope that having to call a binary with a slightly different
name is something that the average developer can do.

And as i said this only affects a few very core binaries. all our
rubygem rpms are using update-alternatives.

As Josef pointed out already do not change the system ruby.

Might it be possible to make YaST use a versioned version of Ruby, so
that the system Ruby would be a bit more flexible?

Sure. Will you and your team help with the work and the maintenance
to keep it working in the long run?
