Libzypp, the package management library used in YaST, currently does
not have a priority mechanism for repos. AFAIK the considered
attributes are package version, architecture, and vendor.

There are some plans to improve that, but I am not sure how far we
are. Anyway, see also http://en.opensuse.org/ZYPP_Mailing_Lists
