It looks like zypper has no "ignore unknown packages/provides" flag. 
zypper .. install $pkg is called with an unknown package then zypper
will just abort because it expects valid input.

Maybe there should be some code which iterates over "names" and lets
zypper check for every single pkg and drop the ones which it can not
resolve. Later the smaller "names" list can be passed to zypper.

Are other plugins more forgiving in this?
