Frankly I'm not sure either. The snapper idea is to provide a libzypp plugin,
which is triggered upon package installation/deletion. The plugin will create
the btrfs snapshot, and I suppose snapper will also provide means to restore
them. So this is, except for the plugin support, outside the zypp scope.

I just wonder why this is 'done' for 11.4, as libzypp on 11.4 has no support
for commit plugins. They are available on SLE and will be on 12.x. Maybe Arvin
has some details about this.
