Re: [Libguestfs] [PATCH] Fix error with --uninstall option on SUSE

No problem with the patch, just one question: can it happen that zypper
may decide to install packages when removing others, e.g. to keep some
other dependency/relationship satisfied?

For example:
1) package PkgA depends on PkgB | PkgC
2) when installing PkgA, PkgB is installed
3) you try to remove PkgB, and zypper decides to install PkgC to keep
   PkgA installed

Of course the example above is overly simplified -- though,
can the above happen?

Thanks,
