[opensuse-factory] SSD detection when creating first time fstab ?

The setup process of opensuse creates a /etc/fstab according to partition
settings on the SSD/hard drive.
However there is no detection of the type (ie SSD or hard drive) during this

I discovered that the TRIM functionnality was not supported by default on ext4
file system. 
TRIM aims at extending duration of SSD by delaying some write/delete operations
; besides it improves performance of SSD.

To get TRIM support on ext4, the partition must be mounted with the "discard"
option in /etc/fstab.
Would it be possible for 12.1 to make the detection script able to spot a SSD
and add this option at the setup step of openSUSE installation ?
I think that SSD users are not always aware that they need to tweak their
/etc/fstab to preserve their drive...

I have no idea if TRIM support can be retrieved from SSD information at the
kernel level.
