currenly when you install a package with zypper, you just get the
packages that are going to be installed, regardless if the are required
or Reccommended,.. will be nice if the messages can be arranged to be
more explict about what the package manager is doing.
"The following NEW [required|reccomended] package is going to be
installed: foo"
also an informative message about Suggested packages should be shown
"The following package(s) is(are) suggested but are not going to be
installed foo bar "
unless user pass --install-suggested or use a boolean configuration
directive on zypp.conf or something, suggested packages should not be
installed by default ..currently it seems to be completely ignored and
does nothing.
