No, you can't use YMPs with zypper.

But wouldn't that be a nice feature? As a user, I would expect that
'zypper install something' will (try to) make sense out of 'something'
and install whatever 'something' refers to :)

zypper in pidgin
zypper in pidgin-2.4.0-3.2.i586.rpm
zypper in
http://software.opensuse.org/ymp/GNOME%3ACommunity/openSUSE_10.3/pidgin.ymp
zypper in http://downloads.sourceforge.net/pidgin/pidgin-2.4.0.tar.bz2

OK, the last one was a joke :)
