If someone comes with better idea how to split qt subpackage without
confusing users I would be glad :)

Don't we have "split-provides" for this case? See:

My understanding of this (after quickly reading it) is that it helps for
upgrades. But it doesn't really help when a user installs the package
for the first time, does it? I think that would be the main issue Michal
wants to fix here.
yes exactly,
currently if user install virtualbox-ose package for the first time he
expect fully working virtualbox with qt gui and I don't want to break
so if user want to install virtualbox-ose and he doesn't care about
qt/gtk dependency he could install virtualbox package as before:
zypper in virtualbox-ose
but if he doesn't want to install all qt libraries (in case of pure
Gnome installation) which are needed by virtualbox-ose-qt he could use
zypper addblock:
zypper addlock virtualbox-ose-qt
zypper in virtualbox-ose
and install vboxgtk packaged by Vincent
