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.

Do you mean to attempt installation of every package in
Factory^WTumbleweed on delete request? Reverse dependency check against
package provides looks really more simple (and that is what is expected
when you ask "anything requires this package?". Users hardly imply
"anything requires this exact string?")

The same was done for cleanup_rings tool and there
is an open issue to do so for delete requests globally against all packages
