It shouldn't be so big deal to have some script that will:
- attempt to mount partitions,
- check for kernel and initrd presence,
- if multiple kernels and initrds are present, collect info to list it as
boot
option
- try to identify openSUSE partitions looking at /etc/SuSE-release
- use information from SuSE-release to label partitions in the list
- present list to the user and ask what to boot

Above will solve boot loader problem.

not so easy because of a rarely said fact: openSUSE is the only
distribution really RAID and LVM friendly, but this allows a variety
of boot systems very difficult to debug


Problem with single kernel left after update that doesn't boot should be
solved with multiple kernels available, not with rescue system. That will
solve problem with broken or non existing initrd too.

All that is asked is:"Don't burn all bridges, before you are sure that new
one
will stand."

there is an option for this in zypper. It have some drawbacks that
could easily be overcome with some twitting (limiting to 2/3
kernels,making the boot option title fancier)
