achieve with a pipe of curl

It goes like, *uh*, http://download.opensuse.org/ *uh* (_no_ pub/) *uh*
distribution/11.1/ *uh* repo/ *äh* oss/ *äh* suse/i586 ... "omgwut". You see,
it's much easier to say "get me that damn package from the URLs I once entered
into the zypper repo.d config" rather than trying to remember that overly long
URL everytime. And, if I merely used wget, I would also need to know the
version number of the package, which in most cases I just don't.

But, ignoring dependencies?

Yes, because zypper cannot know which files I already downloaded.
