I doubt that. It's not an easy task to create software as slow
as the 10.x update stack ;-)

To clarify: this has nothing to do with zypper. Both zypper and
YaST use "libzypp", which was pretty much unusable in the 10.x
SUSE releases. That's what prompted me to create the libsatsolver
library, now used by libzypp. Thus, both zypper and YaST are fast.
(PackageKit also uses libzypp, btw.)
Using the same library has the big advantage that you get the same
results (and bugs) using all interfaces.
