Easier removal of packages installed due dependencies and not manually by user

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Duplicate of #300758
Status: Rejected

Description

If one tries to install a package say "bzflag-debugsource", then due to dependency "bzflag-debuginfo" also gets installed. But later the user may not remember it and will uninstall only "bzflag-debugsource".

So installing and uninstalling, "bzflag-debugsource", does not leave the system in the same state as before. It would be nice if yast2/zypper can remember the automatic package selections and prompt user when the actual packages are being uninstalled and there are no other package that is still dependent on them.

Atleast a way to know the list of packages installed due to dependencies and the no of packages still dependent on them would make it easier for the user. And this list should not include packages manually installed by the user.
