Ok, I see.

Yes, please keep libyaml-ruby1.6 while ruby1.6 around.
Regarding libyaml-ruby, do you want to maintain it by yourself?

Now, ruby-defaults packages contains all -ruby packages for -ruby1.6 
packages that are built from ruby1.6. So, as the same rule, I suppose
ruby-defaults provides all -ruby packages for -ruby1.8 in ruby1.8 
source package, after ruby-defaults becomes ruby1.8. But I'm not sure
which is the better way.
