1) Replace YCP with some common language? With more that 100

modules this looks impossible.

I think this is a good and the only viable option if YaST code
should survive in long run.

For me this looks like a contradiction in itself because
killing YCP would kill all code which is written in YCP.

Stanislav,
what did you actually mean?

I mean YCP as programming language here. The only viable alternative is to ,
as you write below, phase it out:

1) introduce single alternative common programming language as 1st class
citizen
2) move the codebase from YCP to this language, doing easy refactoring tasks
where applicable (keep YaST as whole working)
3) deprecate YCP as programming language
4) look at architecture from perspective of the new codebase and new language

I'm fan of small steps, not grand plans for redoing everything from scratch.

Actually, I'm willing to contribute as time permits.
