PackageKit zypp backend

Good news: Boyd Timothy and Scott Reeves are now working on a zypp backend for PackageKit.

I'm really pleased at the progress of PackageKit so far. There are so many checkins every day it really is amazing the buzz a small project has created in such a small amount of time. Rock on.
