I strongly believe leaving the YaPI layer untouched and doing a simle

Calling YAML::LoadFile from Perl is equally simple as YAML.load in ruby,
isn't it

Not quite. By depending on perl:YaML you're adding a new package
dependency. We have to be extra careful with WebYaST external
dependencies and check for maintenance coverage.

Yes, that's the point where we differ. Plus points for YaPI are
- using existing dbus service
- security

while minus point is extra requirement of perl-YAML in some yast package.

You say, the minus is more important than the plus, I'm saying the opposite.
