Description

currenly when you install a package with zypper, you just get the packages that
are going to be installed, regardless if the are required or Reccommended,..
will be nice if the messages can be arranged to be more explict about what the
package manager is doing.

"The following NEW [required|reccomended] package is going to be installed:
foo"

also an informative message about Suggested packages should be shown

"The following package(s) is(are) suggested but are not going to be installed
foo bar
"

unless user pass --install-suggested or use a boolean configuration directive
on zypp.conf or something, suggested packages should not be installed by
default ..currently it seems to be completely ignored and does nothing.
