I wonder if zypper is capable of "search for all provides in this
package" (i.e. find package that require any provide in other package).
I think Mandrake urpm could do it.

It is possible to have the tools perform a install-time Requires check during
delete request validation. The same was done for cleanup_rings tool and there
is an open issue to do so for delete requests globally against all packages
