The current way of development is

- trunk for everything
- branches for product maintenance

and your example shows that this is not sufficient.

What you (and probably others too, I wonder why noone else speaks up)
need is a 'dedicated bugfix branch' not influenced by ongoing
development in other areas.

In other words: More branches.

If you don't want/need to follow the development in one branch then
you can use use e.g. the devel package, or leave your local copy at a
certain revision.

I guess the 'UI guys'n'girls' would prefer to not being in need to
compile the sublibs at all.

sat-solver e.g. is just a build time requirement. If a libzypp-devel
package was used, you won't see it at all.

Things might be easyer if - instead of checkig out a certain SVN revision
- one could simply order the -devel package based on revision "XYZ".

Sort of internal -devel package build service, shiping the packages
including header files and libs (incl. the *.so.*), prepared to be
installed in /usr/local.
