- What's 'reinstall' supposed to be ?

zypper in --force (rpm -i --force i guess). I guess this should be logged
a separate action (?).

I do not think this is needed. In the end, this is just a package
install.

Well, but then when you do a rollback, you cannot distinguish between

zypper in foo; rpm -e foo; zypper in foo

and

zypper in foo; zypper in --force foo

Don't know if this is an issue, since you you will want to rollback the last
zypper in and in these cases the expected result is different :-/

Anyway, this case is probably not an issue.
