You could also use the python dbus bindings directly, or python
bindings for libpk.

There's no chicken-egg - the patch would look like this:
if 'DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS' in os.environ:
if cmd == 'install':
execv(['pkcon', 'install', sys.argv[1:]])
elif cmd == 'search':
execv(['pkcon', 'search', 'name', sys.argv[1:])
# ..and maybe a total of 3-4 more commands. Personally, I only use those two.

With a change like the above, it would be unaffected, at least for now.

The (first) lower level system is yum-api, yum-cli and pkcon are
really at the same level. It would make sense long term to having them
be more merged.
