Well, as I only need to call a script I don't see the need to go over DBus
here. What about configuring sudo for the webservice user? Or using a tiny
setuid wrapper script? Security-wise this would make no difference, as we can
do everything via SCR-calls as root anyway. It would just make things less
complicated (1).

Or you could create a simple YaPI wrapper (written in Perl), then you could use
over DBus the same way as the other YaST modules.

I guess security team would be against any SUID wrapper...
