music (except mp3) you most definetly need packman.

No, you don't... you could actually go the patent-legal way and buy the
OnePlay Codec Pack... stating that you must use PM is like stating you
must commit a crime to use watch Videos (depending on region that is...

IMO the legal way is the way to go here, i. e. downloading the OnePlay Codec
Pack. If it's really so important for someone to have all that MM-stuff, 20$
seems affordable - you would still get the OS for free.

BUT - just an idea, not thought through - would it perhaps be possible to get
a better deal for openSUSE-users? Let's say 10 $?

Could be a win-win for both sides. But I don't know if this would be
technically feasable.

Perhaps complete BS. Better forget about it. ;)
