--- Comment #8 from Stefan Hundhammer <shundhammer@xxxxxxxx> ---
From the previous comments I gather that the original intent of this bug is not
generally desired.

In particular, we as the Linux community pride ourselves in having complete
control over everything, including uninstalling packages, so forcing the user
to install packages he decides to omit is not the way to go. We issue warnings
to try to make the user aware that what he is about to do might not be such a
brilliant idea, but if he insists, it's his choice.

This is a fundamental principle we are following everywhere (at least that is
our higher goal) in the distro and in YaST in particular.

If you still feel differently, please start a discussion on [research] to let
other voices be heard. The result of that discussion might be a feature request
in fate that the product managers have to agree to.
