Other thing is that yum will not abort on impossibility to download a
package. Basically, on a flaky network connection, doing "yum -y update;
yum -y update; yum -y update" will succeed because the packages are
first all downloaded and when impossible to do so, next one is
downloaded. This is something that facilitates nightly unattended upgrades.

All right, so far so good.
We need to discuss those deficiencies of zypper compared to yum,
Then we may create wiki page, and open bug reports/feature-requests.
