Title: Make vendor change updates visible and easy to install

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Martin Schlander (cb400f)

It requires too much work and knowledge to perform vendor changing
updates - especially if you only want single packages and not switch
vendor for every package in a repo.
I suggest to make single vendor changing updates easily installable via
the sw_single Search tab. For example like this:
1) Make the existence of the update possibility visible with colouring
- similar to current red and blue packages.
2) Make the vendor changing package installable via the context menu -
Right click package -> Update with vendor change

+ I strongly support this feature. Given the fact that e.g. my openSUSE
+ installation contains various repos it is currently very difficult to
+ keep  "up to date".
