I also think it is very useful. See also this enhancement request:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=399239
I proposed a patch to yast-devel ML some time ago.

Another way to make YAST more informative is if window titles reflect the opened module.

Currently, any window YAST opens is called YAST2 and that isn't really guiding the user.

Ideally, when I click on the "Program Installation" module, the window that pops up will be titled "Program Installation" and once I click "Accept" the window title should indicate the progress of the installation process i.e. 45%.

unless someone storms forward with a patch, I don't think we'll be able to implement this. The contact forum is zypp-devel as far as I'm aware.

Reopening becouse I still think this feature would be worthwhile. Maybe you can close it with another reason besides "not enough time" :)
