But the package manager will cause people a lot of trouble I'm afraid and

I've always thought that package management (especially online updates) has
been almost an afterthought in RPM based distros, leading to junk like yum,
but I think the answer here, for those like us that don't like the default
solution, is smart.

Smart is really just so much faster with so much less overhead and even has
a little tray applet checker for KDE, so what I'm planning when I install
10.1 this weekend is rpm -i (guru smart package) then smart remove zen.
