OK. I found what the problem seemed to be. The problem was that Yast did
not know where to place something. Changing the "=Ord: " to a number that
was NOT used solved the problem. I need to do some more testing to see how
to implement it. and what can gow wrong. As this was not documented,
perhaps other features are also not documented.

My question now to SUSE: is there a number that is reserved for "=Ord: ",
like "=Ord: 99" for endusers where we know that it won't be used by SUSE
itself.

If not, would it be possible to make such a reservation? That way people
can add their own *.sel and do not have to worry wether or not it will
clash with current existing =Ord:. My preference would be to have 99, as
that will be the last one.

If people want two, they must look and see what is available for the
second one.
