Comment: Accept to openSUSE:Factory

Well ... shutter requires perl(Gtk2::Unique) which is (was) provided by
perl-Gtk2-Unique, so above search command did does not catch it. Neither
is it build requirements so "whatdependson" logically does not show it
as well.

I wonder if zypper is capable of "search for all provides in this
package" (i.e. find package that require any provide in other package).
I think Mandrake urpm could do it.
