Add "command not found" handling to the shell

Feature state

openSUSE-11.1
Done

Description

Ubuntu has a very friendly message when one types the name of an executable coming from a package not installed:

"the program fulano can be found in the following packages:
* foo
* bar
* baz
try: apt-get install <package>"

now that we will have the pool channels online, we can leverage them, and make things friendlier for entry-level users.

Sounds usefull to me (but I have to admit more for SLED and openSUSE) and it does not lok like as if it would make scripts, especially login/start scripts, slower.

We will add support for the package into bash. We will not maintain the scout package. That will be done by Vladimir.

Scout is maintained in openSUSE BuildService - home:prusnak:scout project

I've added the patch for scout support

Werner: could you also add
Provides: bash(CommandNotFound)
or something similar? So packages could require bash with this feature enabled

Why should I do this? There is only *one* bash and this includes now this feature.
