Add support for autoremove obsolete packages

Feature state



Zypper needs to can autoremove obsolete packages, for instance:

Zypper installs package A, which depens on packages B and C.

Zypper remove package A.

Packages B and C keep installed when they are not longer necessary.

Zypper should can autoremove packages B and C.

This is already implemented in other popular package managers like apt-get in Debian.

This is very useful to keep a clean Suse installation along the time.

Packages may have a flag that indicates if they were automatically installed by other package, or they were installed manually by the user.
