Actually I thought zypp support was complete?  Oh well, how far off is
complete zypp support in supermin?

On the slightly related subject, I need to add dnf/libsolv support to
supermin.  I don't know how much code could be shared.  Unfortunately
I suspect not very much since although both zypper and dnf are using
the same underlying library, there's not much else in common.
