But as I am not able to see the name of the packages in the search
results (unless I use the trick with the URL of the Link) it is
still pretty difficult to find a package for the fitting kernel
version number like 3.1.9-1.4

I would like to see the information like the name of the file

How do you like to get this information displayed?

As a mouse pointer over action?

Messing the screen up should be avoided. The layout must stay as simple
als possible.

without going the way:
(klick, klick, klick, klick, ...)

Maybe I am not learned enough to understand that kernel module
things and I could use kernel modules build for a 3.1.0_1.2-7.1
openSUSE kernel version also for a kernel with a 3.1.9-1.4 version
number but I thought things like that would be important.

As long as the ABI stays stable and bug fixing doesn't require an update
the weak update mechanism handle this.

As the result the /lib/modules/3.1.9-*/weak-updates/updates/nvidia.ko
sym link points to /lib/modules/3.1.0-1.2-default/updates/nvidia.ko for
example in the case you're runnig your system with the default kernel
