And AFAIK the handwritten bindings for libzypp are always a bit
outdated and lack features.

Yes, pkg-bindings implement only the functionality which is really needed from
code. And of course, this is a small subset of what libzypp provides.

On the other hand they hide the implementation details, e.g. when libzypp
changed repository identification from ID (integer) to alias (string)
I just added a mapping functionality to pkg-bindings without touching any YCP
(Fixing this on YCP level would require huge amount of changes...)
