p.s: Suse, please, if you are going to release a SP3 add pkg-config

welcomed. It's not like anything is going to break because of this.

Off-Topic: Is there an official place for such requests? I have a few
of my own.

If you have specific requests for SLE, feel free to send them to me and
let's discuss what to do.

The next major release of SLE - SLE12 - will be using openSUSE as
upstream again, so anything we do in openSUSE might go in.

For a Service Pack like SP3, there're no plans to make a major change
like making it pkg-config friendly. This has to wait for SLE12,
