One could of course argue, that not Packman is broken, but zypper (or 
rpm) is.
Packman uses an older version of createrepo (on debian), which does not 
know yet of these "soft-dependencies" or sugestions. Using the older 
version is for a reason, mainly because of use of debian and the fact, 
that the last stable version of createrepo does not have this feature. 
So at least for now there are no suggestions, see PM-4, an it is not 
that "Packman is broken".

If a new feature is introduced, it should have been tolerant to older 
versions of the repos.
