zypper/YaST2: update only major revisions of packages

Feature state

openSUSE-11.3
Unconfirmed

Description

To update my system I often use "zypper up" or "Package->All Packages->Update if newer version available" in YaST2's Software Management applet.  However, many of the updates available are only minor revisions to the RPM packaging rather than updates to the software itself (new features, bug fixes, etc.).  That is, for a package foo-x.y.z-a.b.x86_64, the available updates increment only a.b rather than x.y.z.

Please add a feature to zypper and/or YaST2 which will update only those packages which have updates for the software itself.
