Title: GUI for reviewing and analysing solver testcases

Requested by: Harald Mueller-Ney (xgonzo)

Given the growing number of community and home repositories in build
service, dependencies issues or update issues are more common.
YaST and zypper are able to provide solver-testcase which are really
good for debugging. While the sheer amound of data as well the
complexity of the provide information makes it really hard to decode a
solver test case to find the real issue even for experienced users.
A GUI tool could provide good support in general and especially by
providing "one click" analysis for the most common issues.

+ This would be really cool.
+ I wonder whether zypper showing ascii dependency tree visualization of
+ the installation summary or of a particular package would still make
+ sense to do once this solver testcase analysis tool was done. Probably
+ yes, because it would be usable also without X, and would be as
+ convenient as typing 'zypper info --dep-tree package' or typing 't' in
+ the 'Continue?' prompt in the installation summary(?).
