This might be instructive for many of us:

User deselects yast2-firewall during installation, and he also
doesn't get the Qt UI:

Bottom line: There are many indirections; there is no direct
'requires', but a number of conditions: You get a yast-qt-ui if the
yast2_basis pattern is fulfilled AND you are installing any of the
X11 desktops. If any of the yast2_basis requirements is not fulfilled
(in this case: no yast2-firewall), you won't get a yast2-qt-ui, and
you'll have a hard time tracking down why not.

The NCurses UI, however, is required much more often (and not in such
complicated ways), so you can be pretty sure that you'll get that one.

To be honest I do not see reason why qt need yast2_basis and ncurses
not. Both should need it or none of it and only differentiator should
be some X or qt libraries. ( or kde desktop ).
