This is IMO just not acceptable.

It has me taken three months in parallel to my normal job to make
TeXLive 2012 compatible with the upstream package scheme. In fact
I'm using the upstream package data base to generate with the help
of some larger perl scripts the packages including fetching source
tar balls, generating spec files, incooperate patches, and further
dependencies, ... I'll not go back from this point.

This is problem of libzypp used by zypper and YaST.
