[opensuse-packaging] Requires: %name = %version-%release

A lot of openSUSE packages require an exact version-release of another
subpackage of the same spec. Is this really needed? While it makes sense
for some special packages like *-debuginfo or the gcc subpackages, does
a *-devel or even *-doc package really need to depend on the runtime
package from the _same build_? IMHO it only makes debugging and testing
harder, because one has to update / downgrade certain sets of packages
atomically, instead of just upgrading the one package with one patch
added. And "one patch added" is usually the only difference (if any)
between libxy-version-release and libxy-version-(release+1).

Opinions? Should we eliminate these strict dependencies where possible?
Or should we use them everywhere? As it is now, it's inconsistent at least.

I attached a script that I used for checking which Factory RPMS have
such dependencies. The second attachment is the output of the script.
